For the past couple of weeks I have been heading to Haworth and teaching drop-in art workshops at the Bronte Parsonage Museum.
The first one I did was based on silhouettes of the Bronte sisters and their books.
Wuthering Heights was a popular choice! The image was made with collaged text that was then tea-stained and included Emily Brontes silhouette.
This was from Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte, vintage birds were added to fit with the text.
Last week the workshop was on mono printing with natural materials. I picked grasses and leaves when I got to Haworth…
And these were used to make prints, along with stencils I had prepared earlier. It was so lovely to see that people approach things in different ways. I got a few ideas for myself!
There is another one this Wednesday: 11-4pm, do come and say ‘Hi’ if you can! We will be printing again but this time making animals inspired by the wildlife in the Bronte area.
The workshop is run on a drop-in basis and is free with admission to the museum.
Haworth is so pretty I took a few snaps too..
I have made a friend on my visits.
