I run print workshops from primary schools across Newcastle and Gateshead to city council day centres introducing relief lino print, monoprint, experimental mark-making and pattern design to a diverse group of people all ages and mixed abilities.
Memory tree workshop consisted of painting a background on the Canvas; printing onto the background; block printing onto many sheets of tissue paper; glueing the tissue onto the tree made by wire; screen printing flowers prints onto fabric; cutting these flowers out and attaching them with wire.
The finished product was hung up in the hallway with a basket underneath for people to take a piece of paper, write a wish or a memory and to hang it on the tree.
