Ideal Xmas presents.

History of the Exhibition |Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho is a community printmaking studio that offers community workshops for adults and children, one on one training and studio equipment rental. The studio has a deep and rich commitment to the community of Boise and values those who value the arts.

During a cleanup a the studio dozens of little scraps of printimaking papers were found jamming up the file drawers. The printmakers at Wingtip Press realized they probably weren’t alone with the dilemma of what to do with all those too-precious-to –toss leftover paper scraps.

An invitation went out to fellow printmakers to participate ina print exchange to use all those lovely leftover scraps to create a small edition of prints. Artists submit an edition of 15 prints of any size up to and NO LARGER than 5 inches by 7 inches and receive a dozen prints in return. Two prints are reserved for travelling exhibition, one print reserved for silent auction to support Idaho Relief Task Force.

Since then exhibitions have been sent out all over the world.

Sarah Hopkins |  Screenprinting with paper stencils

May 26/27.

Those of you who are familiar with her work will know that she has her own unique approach to designing for print, capitalising on cut and torn paper stencils to build up the design through coloured layers. No coating of screens, no exposures – just cutting and a lot of thought!

This is a very open, non technical approach enabling great flexibility as you go through the design process.

Rose Davies | Monotype Workshop |

Saturday and Sunday | August 11th and 12th


Nawr Yr Arwr \ Now The Hero

I first encountered Frank Brangwyn’s Empire Panels at a very young age during school speech days and I have been influenced by his monumental design, his drawing skills and exuberant colours ever since. This two day course will draw inspiration from the flora, fauna and people in these panels, working with a three-colour monotype technique, pioneered by Impressionists Degas and Monet, and given a contemporary spin by American printmaker Vinita Voogd. You will have two unique pieces, one full-colour and one “ghost”, using the highest quality inks and papers, reflecting the richness and diversity of these magnificent murals

Rose Davies has already made brief film of the commissioned work she has done for Nawr Yr Arwr / Now The Hero. This can be seen on her website Man Child
