Sometimes it can get confusing – mostly for me – whether I have my Still Ill OK or Nice Time Arts hat on. That is actually a good thing; it’s because Vicky and I have created a situation where we work flexibly and accessibly (but still bleedin’ ‘ard) solely on making art and creativity accessible […]
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday for the much awaited – due to two postponements – Pen Fight & Still Ill OK mash up Zine Club, run by Nice Time! We will be at Manchester Art Gallery (yes, the really big, beautiful old fancy schmancy one in the town centre) this Sunday 2.30-4.30pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

Hello, An extremely belated post here so hurriedly trying to cover a number of things. Firstly, thank you to everyone who came to the Still Ill OK launch event at HEAD in Stretford. We made some cool art which, as promised, will come together to form the first issue of the Still Ill OK zine […]
I will be running a craftivism workshop focusing specifically on the zine format on day 2 of Breakthrough UK’s brilliant upcoming event, Democracy, Disability and Devolution; an event aiming to encourage more disabled women to get involved in politics. The event takes place over two days and features inspiring female politicians to speak to, various […]
I will be working hard – with use of one hand and zero hips – to be making brand spanking new spoonie humour creations ready for the CH+ and Dulcimer Christmas market. And just generally some non-spoonie but still pretty things. Big fan of the #justacard movement at the moment. As we all know, it’s […]
