Sue Goddard and I will be running this course at Llanover Hall Arts Centre after half term. One of our themes will be exploring creation myths from many cultures with the children, encouraging them to create stories, poems, and images using printmaking and expressive drawing and collage.
Continuing to experiment on the backs of carpet tiles that were left in our studio, this painting emerged. I’ve called it World Tree. I used a combination of house paint for the texture, oils and ink.

Lea Sautin, who is also a member of Cardiff Print Workshop, has an upcoming exhibition at Theatre Mwldan in Aberteifi, Ceredigion. Lea’s work explores the themes of language, translation and perpetual transformation within the storytelling tradition of Wales. She is fascinated by the evolution of the ancient tales of the Mabinogion, from their fluid oral and performative origins to a fixed written manuscript, eventually leading to illustrations of the tales told in their own unique visual language. Lea uses a chain of processes (print to sculpture to photography) to reflect the evolution and alteration of the stories themselves.
I’m looking forward to seeing Lea’s exhibition, which opens 29th April until 18th June.
