About Crossing the Tees

Crossing the Tees was part of the River Tees Rediscovered project that is funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund over a five year period. Crossing the Tees involved various artists such as Miranda Richmond, Adrian Moule and Anna Cole working within three different boroughs in Teesside to provide workshops in Cyanotypes, Collagraphs at Home and Blockprints.

Block Prints

In this workshop, Artist Miranda Richmond guided the group participants on how to do block printing. The group participants were able to use different shaped cutout blocks such as different fish, waves, trees and birds in relation to the River Tees theme to create their own artwork.



Collagraphs at Home

In this workshop, Artist Adrian Moule worked with the group participants on how to make Collagraph prints, the group participants were able to make two different types of prints to capture the area of Teesside, the River Tees and Crossing the Tees.



Cyanotypes at Home

In this workshop, Artist Anna Cole led an introduction to making Cyanotypes at home to the group participants. The group participants were introduced to drawing on acetate to make a negative for the print. Various shapes were used for this to capture their own vision of the Tees.
