For a course that offers more development in the designing and research processes behind different printing methods, there is a Level 1 NCFE certificate in printmaking on Mondays as well. As an accredited course you will be expected to meet the NCFE criteria and build a portfolio of work that demonstrates the development of your ideas and techniques. You will sample various printmaking techniques and work towards a final edition of presentable prints.

This course will run from Monday the 9th of January from 13.30 – 16.30 for 24 weeks. once completed you might be interested in continuing these skills by doing a Level 2 course in September!

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair!

10 Oct

I was emailed earlier in the summer about taking part in the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in London and am excited to have decided to take part! It looks like a great range of artist’s original prints will be on display and should be an opportunity to meet a wider printmaking community!

The exhibition takes place from the 17th – 20th November at the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich and is curated by the Brocket Gallery London.

I’ve decided to exhibit ‘Mezzo-type’, my mezzotint from last year, and ‘Rocker’ as they were particularly interested in my embossed pieces and these combine different methods and will work well displayed together! I am particularly proud of ‘Mezzo-type’ as it was a real labour of love, and although it is a bit different to my most recent work, I do intend to do a twin print in the next year of another printmaking machine from the John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich.

Watch this space, and share the exhibition link! It’s going to be a fantastic showcase of printmaking from across the UK!

I’ve been busy!

20 May

I have been really slack at updating my blog lately, but just wanted to show what I have been doing so far this year, on top of teaching and planning new and exciting things at Print to the People (watch this space! http://printtothepeople.com/home)

I have been working on four new etchings, two of which will be on show at this years Norfolk Show. I am working on two copper etchings that will accompany ‘Aidan’s Studio’, these are of closer studies of his workshop and are a combination of hard and soft ground etching techniques. I’ve also just finished two zinc etchings that are part of a new ongoing series of work based on old photos of family in Ireland in the 1930s.

‘A Grand Day Out’ and ‘A Grand Day Out #2’  are now available to buy:£70 mounted, £90 framed – i’ll put them in my portfolio and will also try to get my Etsy shop going again…
