Artist Anthony Ratcliffe’s exhibition Northern Stone and Peat Smoke comes to Kirkby Gallery, along with a series of one day printmaking workshops.
Anthony works from drawings and material collected on site and has travelled extensively around Britain documenting remote landscape and particularly the way it shows evidence of past land usage, geology and archaeology.
The woodcut prints are complex compositions in many colours and each one takes weeks of work to complete. For this collection of work the artist has explored the North West coast of Scotland, the Scottish island of Rum, the North Yorkshire Moors, the Yorkshire Dales, Coniston slate mines and the Pennine hills near where he lives and has a studio.
Join Anthony at Kirkby Gallery for a one-day printmaking workshop where you will learn how to make a woodcut and produce a mounted print to take home – ideal for beginners and those with some experience.
Cost for the day, including all materials is £30.
This is exceptional value, as they subsidise our workshops to make them affordable to a wider audience.
Available dates to book: 4, 6 & 7 June and 6, 8 & 9 August, 10am – 3.30pm
(There will be a 30 minute break – you are welcome to bring a packed lunch)
