Mixing it up was a residency at The Garage in Bristol from 1 -19 June 2021 with Helen Acklam (a painter), Alice Freeman (another sculptor) and Alice Smith (a dancer).

Unfortunately Alice Smith had Covid during the residency so had to work remotely for most of the time. We still managed to share our work with others on the last weekend for a final show.
