Leap into Gyotaku printing 25/10/16
Tue 25 October 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
Join international artist Rachel Ramirez and naturalist Gill Thompson in a nature printing workshop inspired by the river creatures of Northumberland’s pristine rivers
Rachel is on a 2 week residency learning about and being inspired by the creatures that thrive in the cleanest rivers in England right here in Northumberland. Gyotaku is a traditional early 19th century Japanese method of printing from real fish, a method that Rachel has long been perfecting.
To inspire you, National Park Ecologist, Gill Thompson, will tell of the Atlantic Salmon’s iconic journey returning to their spawning grounds in Northumberland National Park.
A unique chance to have a go at Gyotaku yourself.
Aimed at budding adult artists.
Leaping Salmon: Gyotaku is a project developed in partnership with Queen's Hall Arts, Northern Print, the Environment Agency and Northumberland National Park as part of the 2016 International Print Biennale. Sponsored by Northumbrian Water.
