As part of our Slow Ways art project, multidisciplinary artist and designer Rosie Wainwright walked a Slow Ways route and produced creative work in response to her journey.
“I walked a Slow Ways route from Pool-in-Wharfdale to Adel on the 26th March, which was a lovely sunny Leeds day. The walk took us through woodland, farmland, alongside roads and areas of water. All along the walk I was drawn to all the signage and wild type I found which I used in my piece, alongside other imagery from my walk, and drawings.”
Rosie is a multidisciplinary artist and designer who works across drawing, design, zine making and experimental textiles. She enjoys collecting imagery and ephemera as well responding to her surroundings in her work. Within her practice she is interested in found type and craft as well as our relationship with place, narrative and nostalgia.
