New Screen Prints: Masham & Durham
Elvet Bridge, Durham
There are certain places which draw you back and, for me, Durham is one of those. Although I haven't lived in the city since the early 1980s I return frequently, still moved by its glorious skyline which John Ruskin called the eighth wonder of the world.
Elvet Bridge is old, a medieval survival, and one of the few bridges in Britain which still has houses built on it. At one end of the bridge is a dark archway - the entrance to the House of Correction - a forerunner of Durham gaol.
The print is a six colour reduction screen print which shows the view from upstream of the city.
This will be one of a number of prints which will be on show at Printed by Hand - part of Masham's Spring event, Crafted by Hand, on 25th and 26th of May in Masham Town Hall.

The second new print is a view of Masham from the East side of Wenleydale. Beyond the fifteenth century spire of St Mary's church are the hills of the Burn Valley and Colsterdale. This is the view I see most of the time when I return home.
The print is an eight colour reduction screen print.
