Elizabeth Gaskell’s House – Big Draw Workshop

EGH-08

Elizabeth Gaskell’s House in Manchester has just reopened after a £2.5 million refurbishment programme.  Elizabeth Gaskell, famous for writing Cranford, Mary Barton, North & South, Ruth and Wives & Daughters amongst others lived in this house in Plymouth Grove from 1850 until her death in 1865.

As part of their half-term activities and for the 2014 Big Draw, the Elizabeth Gaskell House Team asked me to run a printmaking workshop based on the beautiful patterns and objects found around the restored rooms.  In preparation I had great fun and felt very privileged to spend an afternoon photographing the House to create an exciting exploration game for the workshop.

I’ll post some pictures of the workshop when I get them – we had a professional photographer there and everything!
