Last weekend textile artist @loraavedian ran an online workshop using the hand stitching technique appliqué. How amazing is this work by one of the participants, @newbykateemily, inspired by the work of Alfred Wallis?

Today is #GivingTuesday. For the price of your coffee for the week you could make a huge difference to Kettle’s Yard. Your donation helps us to support artists and our community and ensure everyone can enjoy our spaces and programme. Donate now: 2020 has been a difficult year for many and Kettle’s Yard is no exception. We have been closed for almost half of the year, which has not only had a big impact on our artistic programme but it has also put us in a difficult financial position. We rely on income we earn through our shop, cafe and donations from visitors to support everything we do. As well as encouraging you to buy your presents in our shop, this year we are asking you to consider giving a gift to Kettle’s Yard too.

Join us on 5 December for our next online workshop: Art & Ideas at Home: Household Printmaking with Rachel McGivern. Taking inspiration from Kettle’s Yard collection artists Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth you will use easily available art materials to learn block and relief printing techniques. Ben Nicholson’s abstract prints will be the starting point to compose and draw out your own designs and print beautiful patterned papers. We will look at traditional lino block printing before exploring household objects. You will also mono-print simply using a sheet of plastic (plastic wallet) and water-based pen or ink. The workshop is focused on methods for printmaking at home, without a press, and will cover a range of techniques and experimental material options. £50, booking required Book now:
