Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wow, that is a neat bit of serendipity. Studying under Tom Hudson certainly shook me out of my middle-class complacency! The other who was a great influence at that time in Leicester was Mike Sandle, who to a certain extent took me under his wing.

I only did short courses with them at Barry summer school after finishing art school (Camberwell). I'm afraid I found it a bit superficial - I generated quite a lot of visual ideas, as they encouraged us to do, and I think it was Setch who said I had enough ideas already for 10 years work and a show. I thought what I had done was all a bit trivial - no real aha moments :-) But they could be very encouraging and liberating if you were stuck in some limited mode. I see Setch was still working quite recently with some stuff supposedly having an ecological orientation - though it wasn't really clear in the work itself on his site.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
