Printmaker Bronte Adam

Bronte Adam is a printmaker who specialises in relief printing, her preferred method being lino and woodblock. Bronte particularly enjoys the challenge of carving intricate details into her print blocks which she combines with multi coloured separation, giving her clean and vibrant prints. Her prints bring to life galah cockatoos perched in eucalyptus trees or plump ripe grapefruits nestled among leaves


Bronte studied printed textiles and surface pattern design at Leeds Arts University. She has worked both as a freelance artist and as a commercial artist designing prints for homeware and children’s clothing. She has recently finished a major print commission redesigning the packaging for a UK soft drinks company which was launched in early 2022. 


Bronte takes inspiration from textile designers such as Josef Frank or the patterns and compositions found in Iznik pottery from the Middle East.

What a fabulous course. Bronte is not just super talented but also an is an excellent teacher, with lots of patience too. I had some basic knowledge of printmaking but the techniques that she taught me have completely upgraded my printmaking and I came away with lots of confidence and ideas - Tess
This was a completely new experience for me and I enjoyed it from start to finish.  The course was well structured as it suited the whole the group who had mixed abilities from complete beginner to those with experience. The teacher was extremely helpful and ‘hands on’ throughout the day encouraging everyone at their own pace. It was exciting to see the wide variety of printed linocuts at the end of the day. - Mary
Brontë Adams our tutor filled us all with confidence and really got the best out of the group. Certainly a place I will visit again. - Sally

This was a brilliant course in a fabulous setting.  At first I found the jigsaw linocut method quite confusing but by the end of the 3 days, I felt much more confident and am really pleased with the work I produced.  Bronte is a very patient, encouraging and generous teacher.  She spent the whole time with our group, checking our designs, advising us where needed and giving us lots of tuition about the whole process.  I learnt so much from her.  The room we used was light and airy with lots of space for us to work in. Marvellous! - Penny
Excellent course, Bronte is a confident and inspiring tutor with much knowledge and experience of her craft. I had been anxious prior to the course, being a complete beginner in lino cutting and printing, but I need not have worried. I exceeded my expectations thanks to Bronte's positive attitude, encouragement and attentiveness to all her students needs. - Diane

Bronte is an excellent tutor and had clearly spent considerable time thinking about how to run the course and what materials to provide. The workroom was great - lots of natural light and a nice quiet environment in which to work.
This course was very well suited to the three days, allowing time to design, carve, and print.  Bronte had a good balance of demonstration and was full of encouragement.  I particularly liked the way she let participants follow their own path, and it was great to hear her empowering people through phrases like 'what you think' and 'you decide'. - Julian
These art courses are aimed at learning a craft with talented professional artisans. It was a fabulous, peaceful stay and the printmaking course was well worth the travel from the US. Absolutely beautifully hand crafted accommodations in the Red Shed, delicious meals, beautiful wild property with many walking paths and views of Wales. I wish I could have stayed longer and done more courses. Will be coming back! - Erica
