Working alongside printmaker and book artist Theresa Easton, participants explore the art of bookmaking using printmaking techniques and themes close to home such as identity, learning between generations, social history and storytelling. The exhibition is part of Fabulous Books, Fantastic Places: BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair  celebrating the Festival of the North East, marking the temporary return to the region of the Lindisfarne Gospels.
