On Tuesday 10th May, Carol from Surprising Lines ran a workshop in the woods, teaching monoprinting, which is a simple technique using water-based ink that involves rolling ink onto a smooth surface, placing paper on top and making marks on the back, producing unpredictable results...
The participants were joined by Mervyn Mewis who knows the Birtley woods well. Carol provided the art materials and inspiration and the participants brought their own sandwiches and plenty of enthusiasm!
Future art days are Tuesdays 7th June, 12th July and 16th August. Please contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
