Tales from the Fen: The Folklore of Cambridgeshire in my Printmaking

13 June 2024
Free to all

Lizzie shares insight on her research on Cambridgeshire folklore and her artistic process of lino print and etching.

Lizzie Ault is an artist who uses forgotten stories to link people with places. Lizzie uses observation, imagination, and a sprinkling of the fantastical to create striking imagery that evokes a sense of connection with the landscape and a celebration of East Anglian heritage; the wildlife, characters, stories, and places that hold visceral memories from history.

Lizzie studied Fine Art, Painting at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff from 2002 - 2005. After a 10-year career in design, she returned to fine art in 2020 and discovered printmaking.

Lizzie has spent the last few years researching the folklore of Cambridgeshire and East Anglia to inspire her artwork. She has used some of the artefacts and stories from the Museum of Cambridge and the Enid Porter project in this research and will be sharing the artwork inspired by the collections as well as other local stories in this talk. From Elizabeth Woodcock to Mucky Porter, Lizzie has become fascinated by the unique collection of folk tales from East Anglia and has created artwork that captures the character of the region. She will share insights into her research and her artistic process in lino print and etching. Lizzie will be showcasing her original artwork as well as sharing sketchbooks and printing plates that she has produced during this period.
