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!

PRINT TO THE PEOPLE !!!!!!

10 Mar

Print to the People are an artist led organisation that was started up in Norwich by two super keen screen printmakers, Jo Stafford and Vicky Johnson back in 2009.  They provide facilities and workshops on a pay as you go basis, giving the people of Norwich and beyond the chance to develop their printing techniques either as complete beginners, recent graduates or experienced fanatics!

Up until recently the organisation, ‘STEW’, was based on Fishergate and primarily focused on paper and textile screen printing. However, they will very soon be moving to new premises on Pitt Street where they will be offering a wider range of printmaking facilities and events including relief printing, letterpress with Paul McNeill and also I will be getting involved to provide intaglio!

Check out the website and look out for upcoming events! I’ll keep you poste on here too!
