Behind-the-Scenes : Art Workshop

Behind-the-Scenes : Art Workshop

One method I use for inspiration, and to sometimes kickstart me into painting again if I have hit a lull, is to attend a workshop. 

Recently, I attended a workshop called "Landmarks" with Alice Fox, at Lund Gallery near Easingwold. It was three days of immersion into the landscape, drawing, walking, rust printing, eco dyeing, mono-printing, fabric dyeing, stitching, mark making, and then finally, tiny-book making. My fellow workshop attendees were from all walks of art-making, which provided fascinating conversations and approaches to the projects. Here are a few photos from those days.
