Event Details

Land of Oak & Iron are excited to host the next of our regular ‘Meet the Maker events at the Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill.  Our next Meet the Maker is with illustrator Lauren Young.

Lauren is an illustrator, based in a small studio in Consett, her work is influenced by the County Durham and Northumberland countryside.

Lauren’s illustrations are vibrant, full of colour and with lots of detail.  Lauren has a range of beautifully illustrated greetings cards, gifts, homeware and prints.

After graduating from University in 2019 with first class honours in illustration and design, Lauren is now illustrating full time, creating her own stationery and homeware ranges as well as completing commissioned work for clients such as murals, bespoke wedding stationery and pet portraits.

Lauren works primarily in watercolour, using digital editing, pencil and pen work as secondary skill sets.  Her style is free flowing but still full of detail and vibrant colours which are characteristic of her work.

Some of Lauren’s work is now available to view and purchase from the Heritage Centre shop (accessed via café shrub) in the 2 weeks running up to her Meet the Maker event.  Please also drop by to say hello to Lauren in person on Saturday 12th June to see some more of her original artworks and to show your support local artists and makers.

The Heritage Centre and all our events are fully risk assessed and Covid-19 compliant.

‘Meet the Maker’ will be outside under cover of the gazebo, social distancing will be in place for both the artist/makers and our visitors.  We have enhanced cleaning regimes in place, sanitiser and hand gel is available at both entrances to the Heritage Centre and face coverings to be worn when entering the building to use toilets, shop area and café shrub for take-away.
