The public is invited to join coastal walks and workshops with talented artists this spring.

The project will be based on and around the whin sill outcrops at Budle Bay and Holy Island.

Together with artists and geological and archaeological experts, groups will record their physical or emotional responses to the landscape using art techniques.

The walks will be followed by workshops to help create artwork with the professional guidance of artists Lindsay Duncanson and Graham Patterson.

Graham said: “I know and love the whin sill outcrops and I’ve worked here over the years. I’m really looking forward to this project. I’s a fresh approach to work with newly-trained arts producers in north Northumberland.”

Four volunteers were trained as arts project managers in the Make Art Happen Project last year. Make Art Happen is a collaboration between Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership and Helix Arts.

Heritage Lottery Fund, Northumberland County Council and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation have supported this work. The training enabled volunteers to design and manage their own arts programmes and the four trainees are now co-producing Immersive Northumbrian Landscapes.
