Collagraphy is a collage printmaking technique, where the image is composed from a variety of textured materials glued to a base. The workshop is led by artist Yvonne Weighand Lyle and participants require no previous art or print-making experience.
What my work is about:
As a descendant of a coal mining family with deep roots within Edinburgh and Midlothian, I am connected to the county in a way that is integral to my sense of identity, My great grandfather was born in Morrison Street and I have lived and worked in Dalry for most of my adult life.
My artwork explores ideas of origin, both genealogical and geological; the local and familiar juxtaposed against the remote immensity beyond remembered time.
