Working with the Biddulph Ramblers and members of local craft groups (such as Nimble Fingers), the workshop was led by invited guest artist, Louise Adams of Stockton Brook Studios and by Emma Dawson Varughese, the lead artist of Knotted Identities. The workshop used printing techniques, mark-making, botanical prints, negative and textured prints with ‘gelli plates’ to explore what it means to belong to Biddulph and its surrounding areas in the Moorlands.
