The Hepworth Wakefield Print Fair Letterpress Workshop 21st March 2015

R

We’ll be at The Hepworth Wakefield Print Fair on Saturday 21st March with a stack of wood type and the Vandercook proofing press so you can get your hands covered in ink and print a completely unique poster, this is the real deal folks!

And get this…at 2pm “Legendary Curwen Studio printmaker Stanley Jones will be in conversation with the art historian Alan Powers about the boom in artists’ printmaking since the 1950s and collaborating with some of the greatest artists of the 20th century including Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney and Henry Moore.”

That’s mad as pants.

Also showing during the weekend are the  films made by Square Eye Printing who as you will know has made a number of films about The Print Project. One of which is more revealing than the rest (!)…watch this space…

It’ll be a great weekend. See you there.

And if you can’t make that we’re running two workshops at West Yorkshire Print Workshop in April & July.
