Meet your Tutor
Meet Sally Tyrie
Sally Tyrie works predominantly with printmaking, mixed media and photography, often preferring to select surface and media that makes connections with the theme and context. Method and meaning are often interconnected.
Approaches often involve deconstructing and assembling work using collage methods. In particular juxtaposing multilayered prints and drawings with machine or hand stitch as a way to examine, reinterpret and reimagine. Sally is drawn to techniques that allow ‘chance’ and ‘accident’ to adopt a more painterly and expressive approach.
Her method of working usually involves some form of initial research and investigation. For instance repeated visits to a location or historical research in a subject. It is important to Sally that visual and historical research underpin and inform the group of work. The investigative journey is as much a part of the work as the end result.
Sally is especially drawn to subjects with historical and environmental interest and looks forward to sharing her research and investigative approach to mixed media printmaking with you.
“Thank you so much for your teaching, patience and fabulous fun times. Super proud of what we all achieved.”
Sally will guide you through the following modules sharing her observations and thought process along the way.

This module is about ways to really change and abstract the original imagery and move away from literal translations using gelli plate and mono-printing techniques with a range of media to create lively mark-making from collected sources and imagery.
You will look at viewpoints and create exciting unusual and personal versions that create a new vision of your work. You will also unpick and visually investigate the imagery and ideas you are interested in through this mark-making process.
