This is my final display of the 500 gingerbread men. It’s very plain, i’m not a fan to be honest. I think they looked that good on the stairs that anything else would have been crap. 
Got another leather carving on the go, so will put some work in progress shots up in the next few days.

Today I went to the Infant’s School in Drayton to give a talk on my work and I was absolutely brickin’ it.

This is a postcard from Market Drayton that i’m using in my Englishness project at uni, really enjoy how dated it looks.

I’ve spent the majority of today trying to get images of my Drayton maps onto gingerbread men. This is the most successful. I used fabric heat transfer paper and ironed it onto the gingerbread. It burnt in several places but overall it looks alright.
