Tones of Nature: Out & About – Summer 2022 

In May 2022 I was awarded a Microgrant for my Natural Inks project proposal.  I researched, created and taught techniques and recipes for natural, locally sourced inks which were screen-printed on to hemp fabrics. The culmination of the project was delivered at the Sustainability Weekend on the 3rd/4th September 2022 as part of the Out & About celebrations. 


Out & About brought together cultural, community and hospitality businesses in the area, alongside community groups, local artists and creatives to celebrate creativity and making in Sheffield. Each of the four special Out & About Weekenders had a theme of its own and offered a programme of FREE, family-friendly activities including drop-in creative workshops, exhibitions, newly-commissioned artworks, performances and events.

Out & About was generously supported by Sheffield City Council Economic Recovery Fund, and was led by a partnership between The Site Gallery, The Workstation, Yorkshire Artspace and Bloc.
