How cultural experiences can improve health and wellbeing

Lucy May Schofield

Lucy May Schofield is a multi-disciplinary visual artist. Her practice focuses on the importance of making and the process of collaboration. She has delivered workshops in printmaking, creative writing, paper making and book arts around the UK for the past 10 years, for a wide range of organisations from the Whitworth and University of the Arts London, to community groups and local primary schools. Her art making informs her outreach work and inspires her social practice. She explores language, impermanence and belonging in relation to how we create narrative within our lives. She believes that through the process of making, cross-cultural dialogues can occur, interested in using printmaking techniques as a tool to connect and converse with strangers.

In 2013 Lucy relocated to Japan to study water-based woodblock printmaking. In 2015 she received an International Development Award from the British Council to travel to China and the USA to exhibit new work at International printmaking conferences. She has recently returned from artists’ residencies in rural Iceland and San Francisco, where she made prints using the fading Arctic winter light and paper using traditional Japanese techniques. She is currently based in Manchester.
