Its aim is to explore and engage contemporary printmaking through expanded fine art practice.

Professional guest presentations and practical studio sessions are designed to compliment the studios long-term vision to promote contemporary print through an ethos of exploration and cross-disciplinary research and professional excellence. Guest artist’s selection is based on a demonstration of research led practice linking tradition and innovation within their specialised area of contemporary printmaking practice.

Between April and May 2018 we welcomed our three guest artists: Bronwen Sleigh, Emma Gregory and David Armes.

Artist talks and masterclasses were a huge success with all participants gaining invaluable insights to practice and new skills.

We would like to thank our guests for their generosity, knowledge and contributions to our studios collective learning.
