Various dates during October and November
Queen’s Hall Arts is leading on an artist’s residency and programme of workshops, demonstrations and events linked to and celebrating the “salmon leaping” season, the annual migration of salmon and trout along the North Tyne from Hexham to Kielder. The residency focuses on Rachel Ramirez, an English artist living in Portugal, who is an expert in gyotaku (a Japanese print process dating back to the 1800s arising from fishermen taking ink impressions from their catch) and nature printing.
