Sadly we faced serious technical issues and lost our wifi connection. Another camera was recording the session so we are editing those clips and aiming to share those as soon as possible.

During the interview Glow TV viewers asked lots of questions and we are working on a transcript of the answers. Watch this space 🙂

Johanna, thank you so much for your time on Tuesday! We can’t wait to share the Blue Peter moment you created for viewers after the live event. We will give you a clue – what does Glow begin with?…

In the meantime if you have access to YouTube – The DCA interviewed Johanna and the clip can be viewed here!

InkyMEs arrive at the DCA!!

Today the InkyMEs arrived in Dundee to visit Johanna Basford’s exhibition ‘Wonderlands’. They waited patiently outside the gallery doors.

They crept through the paper forest. The trees were gigantic. They spotted worms eating fallen apples and peered into holes in the trunks of the trees. The black and white trees swayed gently as they strolled through the forest. They were mesmerised by the black and white shapes and patterns.

When the InkyMEs made their way out of the paper forest they were astonished by the size of the vast gallery. It was gigantic and filled with wondrous artworks.

The wallpaper was incredible. They wanted to clamber into ‘Crazy Botanic’ and be tickled by the petals and snooze under the umbrella of leaves. Most them agreed that ‘Macbeth’ was very scary and the slender snakes looked very dangerous.

The InkyMEs then settled back to listen to Wendy, a storyteller from Glasgow who happened to be in the gallery that day. It was magical!

The InkyMEs are looking forward to meeting Johanna Basford next week and they hope you are too.
