The Cornwall Workshop

Lizzie Ridout

Lizzie Ridout trained in visual communication at Falmouth College of Art & The Royal College of Art. She focuses on research as an artistic practice, with provenance – of material, language, process – underpinning her outcomes. She often works with paper and archives.

Lizzie was Book Artist in Residence at Women’s Studio Workshop, NY, US; Pearson Creative Research Fellow at The British Library, London; and Artist in Residence at Fiskars, Finland. Recent collaborations include Various Writings (an exploration of past/present/future acts of writing through practice-based and theoretical experiments), and Tanks & Tablecloths at Plymouth Arts Centre (an exhibition bringing together naval artefacts with new responsive artworks).

Lizzie divides her time between being a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at Falmouth University, UK and continuing her own studio practice.
