In search of the strange
Stories, workshops & linoleum print artworks
In Autumn of 2022, I was selected for an artist residency with George Street Community Bookshop in Glossop, supported by Arts Council England. During the residency I went on a hunt for the stranger side of Glossop, exploring the local landscape, folklore and unusual history to inspire new written and illustrative work.
Including this collection of bookmark-sized lino prints based on elements of local myths and stories, and given away in the bookshop.
I also ran drop-in printmaking sessions for local people to come a long and print their own bookmark to take away.
You can find out more about my residency here, including a short story zine I made with people who attended my 'flash folk' workshop in the bookshop.
