‘Connections’ a hand printed linocut calendar for 2021 by Hannah Turlington
There are 16 million mass produced calendar’s sold every year. I have carved hard to deliver a contrast to that mass produced product that will connect you with a traditional craft in a practical yet beautiful product. With 2020 being a year defined by isolation, we look forward to 2021 where we can celebrate and re-establish those connections and my hand printed calendar is an ideal way to do this.
My hand printed calendar is launched now. ‘Connections’ is a series of 12 original lino prints celebrating the power of connections in everyday life.
I am a printmaker, living and practicing in North Yorkshire, my work is defined as fine art, designs, workshops,(both online and face to face) and commissions.
I specialises in telling stories with her art. I define my way of working as:
‘I am a story teller and I use my work to tell those stories. Sometimes they belong to me; Sometimes they belong to others but usually they belong to all of us’.
My 2021 hand printed calendar will appeal to art lover and those looking to give a special Christmas gift to calendar loving art collectors. Each month sees a different, original signed lino printed image, mounted onto a clip board. January 2021 tells the story of settling down for a cup of tea and reconnecting with ourselves and others at the coldest time in the year. February's image of lemon & juicer tell the story of pancakes and preparation for Spring. March’s image prompts us to make do & mend and it is when we start to think of new decorating projects.
Printed onto high quality printmaking paper with light fast ink, means that the art stays vibrant for as long as needed.
