Ellie Cliftlands

Festival: 2022

I am a one of the very few young wood engravers in the UK. After a wonderfully successful time at the 2019 Wirksworth Arts Trail I was desperate to be part of the event once again! The last few years has afforded me time to work at my craft and I was recently delighted to be compared with Bewick. I love to demonstrate the process, either engraving or printing using my portable press. There is definitely a reoccurring theme to my work – nature. You’ll often find me crouched on the floor trying to get the perfect angle of a mushroom!
