HAWORTH’S legendary literary sisters are being seen in a new light.

Images of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte have been reproduced – on a lampshade.

And as a backdrop to the siblings, there is a portrayal of the parsonage where they grew-up and the moors above Haworth that provided so much inspiration for classic works such as Wuthering Heights.

The Bronte family moved to Haworth from Thornton in 1820 when the father, Patrick, was appointed curate. All the children were just young.

“My aunt lives in Halifax so I know Yorkshire well and love visiting,” says Rosalind Freeborn, who created the lampshade.

“I plan to produce Shakespeare, Dickens and Austen shades too – I like a theme!”

Rosalind creates her artwork using a range of paper scraps and products, including tissue paper, newspapers and even sweet wrappers.

She first produces collages – depicting scenes familiar to her, from locations such as Yorkshire and Lancashire to the Lake District and her ‘home city’ of London – and then works her magic to transform them into lampshades.

In addition to the Bronte creation, Yorkshire images featured have included York Minster, Fountains Abbey, Whitby harbour, the Ribblehead Viaduct and the bridge at Knaresborough – as well as the region’s moors and upland rock formations.

Rosalind has also captured celebrities in her work.

Jeremy Paxman and Andrew Marr are among those she has conjured-up from thousands of fragments of paper, plus a host of Coronation Street characters – with Ken and Deirdre Barlow, Gail Platt, Dev Alahan and Betty Turpin among the well-known faces.

“I adore Corrie – it is probably to do with me having lived in Manchester at one time – and I chose to make paper portraits of the characters in the show rather than the actors,” says Rosalind.

She also does commissions for people celebrating special occasions, such as wedding anniversaries. And last year she was among a number of artists who created free portraits of NHS workers as a thank-you for their work during the pandemic.
