A short course in Cumbria

1 greystoke green
Greystoke Village

The sun was shining when I arrived in the village but thereafter it mostly rained.  It was after all the Lake District but it didn’t worry me on this visit as the course I was on was indoors at the Cycle Cafe  –  http://www.quirkyworkshops.co.uk

I was on a wood engraving course and it was brilliant!  Here is some of my work.  I should point out that all of the wood blocks we worked on were very small, about 2″ x 1″.

Now that I’m home again I need to buy some tools so that I can continue.  Wish me luck!

    1. Thank you Marina. I love Cumbria even in the rain so I will have to return to do some walking. For now I will make some new goals: artistic as well as my physical health.

  1. Awesome, Ashley!
    I am glad that you caught a few rays of sun in Cumbria so that you could take a couple of pictures for us.
    Your artwork looks wonderful. Good luck in finding all the tools and materials that will allow you to continue this endavour. I am looking forward to seeing more!
    Much love,

    1. Hi Steffi,
      the course was only 3 days but very intense so the time seemed to go by very quickly. A sort of meditation?
      Much love,

    1. Unfortunately, no! As I type I have a small block of boxwood ready to use, hopefully for this Christmas. Enjoy what’s left of the weekend. We are about to put our clocks back one hour, tonight! 🕰⏲⏰⏱
