The Late Shows happens every year in May, it is part of the Museums at night which my building always takes part in. As I am part of Ampersand Inventions (finally, woo hoo), I am having an open studio this year which means you are free to come along and have a chat. 

I will probably have one of our photo booths set up (as shown below, how cool are they?) for people to take a photo and take a print away (for a very small charge to cover paper costs), I will also have prints for sale and some of my video tutorials playing on the computer or projector. 

The theme for this years show is on space and I already have a few ideas of how I am going to decorate which I am keeping top secret for now. But if you are interested and want to know more the event page is here, it will be on the 14th May, in Newcastle and the to get into the event is free.

There is a lot of other creatives in our building and surrounding buildings taking part so it would be incredible to see a few familiar and new faces.
