Project Description

The aim of the workshop is to come together to find new ways to make marks and develop drawings and prints using the collected marine plastics as mark making tools and to share stories about this place. We will be making brushes from discarded fishing twine and stamps to print with from the many plastic shards found on our beaches, and using earth and clay from the area to make inks and paints to paint and print with. The workshop will help you find and develop new expanded ways to make a mark and create work on paper using materials that you may not have used before. All materials will be included – but if you want to bring your own plastics from a beach clean that would very welcome.

Lydia is an artist whose work explores place through the lens of our complicated human relationship with our environment. Lydia completed an environmental artist commission for the Burton at Bideford in 2019, the completed artworks have joined the Burtons Permanent Collection.
