ARTWORKS exhibition 2016: Meet the Artists

At the Artworks exhibition this year we have a ‘Meet the Artist’ programme. A different artist is at the exhibition each day to discuss their work or to demonstrate the techniques involved in making their work. Other artists in the group will be working at the sales desk or in the Artworks café, so there are many artists to meet on any given day.

Today, Saturday 21 September 2013, Artworks artist Janet French will be demonstrating printmaking and creative papermaking in the Artworks exhibition.
Janet French : Printing Trees on Leaves


Janet French says of her recent work, which is in the Artworks exhibitionI have been exploring the spiritual impact of the effect of light seen through trees. The images are produced using a variety of printmaking methods and are printed onto papers I have created using the leaves and fibres of local woodland species, for example beech, nettle and oak.
