Saturday was a magical day here at Crescent Arts.
Rumple Your Stiltskins workshop was organised by Crescent Arts as part of A Festival of Yorkshire and based around the work of one of Yorkshire’s best known and loved artists, David Hockney.
Mum, with her captivating voice, read aloud Grimms fairytales amongst Hockney’s etched illustrations currently showing at Woodend Creative Space, Scarborough.
The most delightful kids between the ages of 8 – 13 then created their very own fairytales which they illustrated, printed and bound. Below is an example of a glorious illustration by Caitlin, aged 10.
Everyone had a go at simple mono and relief printing using the beautiful and enticing antique Columbian press.
A Rasta theme emerging here!
A big thank you to all the kids, mums and dads (not to forget wonderful assistants Shanna and Charlotte) that took part.
