In 2013 Sara Lee joined Rabley Drawing Centre as Artist-in-Residence. Inviting an artist to spend a year with us, visiting and revisiting this place throughout the seasons, is like planting a crop.
Sara has relocated from her London studio to the rural environs of Home Farm and Rabley Drawing Centre, spending time in the landscape each month. Through drawing, print and film, her images are a response to the ephemeral nature of landscape and question our emotional and physical relationship to an evolving exterior space.

SARA LEE: JAPANESE WOODCUT COURSE
Thu 3 – Sat 5 April 2014 SPECIAL EVENT OFFER* 10% Discount
Sara will introduce the history and technique of Japanese woodcut: a water based, coloured, woodcut printmaking method, that does not require a press. You will investigate ways of using this in your wider creative practice.
The cutting and registration techniques learned on this course will be very useful for those using conventional Western woodcut tradition and those with an interest in hand-printing.
The course will both explore the unique and subtle qualities of the Ukiyo-e tradition of preparing and printing blocks and explore ways of using it for multi-block relief prints.
