Insect dry point etchings using Tetra Packs

By Rachel Bull, 12/31/2022 - 13:32

A free public drop in workshop I did at the Townhall for Hebden Bridge Arts’s Launch 70. I chose insects because they are a vital part of the planet’s ecosystem and they are rapidly in decline so our ecologies are under threat. It’s a celebration of insects in all their glory. Let’s protect them, leave wild areas, plant wild flowers, let lawns grow, don’t use chemical herbicides and pesticides, allow rewilding….

Connections to Nature

I did a project with year 10s in Rastrick High School as part of Hebden Bridge Arts larger project with 6 community groups called Landmarks.
I chose the theme Connections to Nature as a good starting point for the students to think about the places, outdoor activities or wildlife that were special to them and connected them to nature. We did relief collagraphs and collages with printed papers, as well as some work in their sketchbooks, and then everyone chose one piece to put in an exhibition at Gibson Mill.

A little round up of what's been happening in Rach Red World in 2021...
Well I started the year plunging into icy waters every day for a month as I joined the January Daily Dip 2021. And this inevitably led to some icy prints. Woodcuts they were. Based on some of the frozen water patterns I was observing daily.

And boy was it a frozen January! Look at these... (Let it go! Let it go! etc.)

'Impressed' - New Artwork 2019 #1

By Rachel Bull, 01/02/2020 - 19:31

In March, together with the more advanced printmakers in my print classes at Northlight Art Studios, we put on 'Impressed', a collective exhibition to celebrate the array of printmaking that goes on here. It was a great success, the opening night was buzzing and everyone made multiple sales. I decided to make some long thin prints based on migratory species. They are of swallows and grey whales and have a background layer of maps that show their long journeys.

Robot Invasion

Well it's been a while since I blogged so I thought I would review my artistic year in a few blog posts...
Starting with the Robot Invasion we had at Northlight Art Studios as part of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival. Myself and Katch Skinner have a habit of organising free drop-in workshops and this year we planned a few robot related activities, until in the end we did in fact have a robot invasion! Take a look:
