Hillary Paynter: The Age of Enlightenment

Age of Enlightenment featured renowned artist Hilary Paynter and her daughter, also a wood engraver, Leonie Bradley.

The project invited engagement around the subject of age and ageing.  Daisi organised workshops which linked to the renowned artists’ exhibition tour.  Workshops took place in North Devon, Exeter, Paignton, Dorset and Bath.  The workshops offered the opportunity to explore attitudes towards ageing with inter-generational groups alongside acquiring new skills.

The project was funded by the Baring Foundation and Arts Council England.
