Emily Sutton Workshop at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

After several weeks of workshops and printing for fairs it was lovely to be on the receiving end of tuition last Saturday. I had a really pleasant day on Emily Sutton’s workshop at YSP, firstly mono-printing leaves onto calico and then carefully stuffing and embroidering an Emily Sutton Song Thrush in it’s nest.
