I greatly admire and appreciate the way Mary Dalton simultaneously made print making accessible to those without any previous experience, and actively encouraged students to work with things readily accessible in the home, while also managing to inspire and encourage us to be creative. I found the course easy to follow and came away inspired to think about looking at texture, layering of materials and form in a new way.

Mary Dalton

Mary trained at the Royal College of Art, graduating with an MFA in Printmaking. She has been teaching since 2008 and her work is in the collections of the Imperial War Museum and the Tate Library as well as international museums.

Mary's practice is engaged on a daily basis with the ancient environments and woodlands that surround us and that were once the backbone of this island and indeed the world. These landscapes hold stories of the past and a lifeline to save our future and Mary's practice is dedicated to communicate these tales of what is often left unsaid or unseen.
