Our series of Focus on Printmaking Workshops offer a valuable opportunity to discover new processes and develop a sophisticated understanding of printmaking. They are designed to meet the requirements of people with a keen interest in the subject and cater for varying levels of experience.
Each 2-day workshop aims to give participants knowledge and understanding of a particular process (for example Linocut, Collagraph, Drypoint, Etching or Screenprint) and an opportunity to produce work that shows a creative response to that printmaking technique. You will be taught by one of the Regional Print Centre’s Print Facilitators who have a wealth of printmaking knowledge and understanding.
All materials and equipment will be provided and participants are encouraged to explore their own subject and creative influences throughout the 2-day workshop.
Participants can move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to our specialist Visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.
North Wales PRINT FAIR 2017
We are pleased to announce the first North Wales Print Fair to be held at MOSTYN in Llandudno, North Wales on Saturday 11th November 2017.
The North Wales Print Fair, organised in partnership with The Regional Print Centre, will be a fantastic opportunity for printmakers from all over the UK to present work for sale in the fabulous spaces of Wales’ foremost contemporary gallery and visual arts centre.
The gallery’s shop and retail spaces, including one dedicated to printmakers, has become known as the ‘go to’ place in North Wales to buy work by contemporary makers at affordable prices.
Barry Morris, MOSTYN Retail Manager said:
‘We’re thrilled to be planning this, the first ever print fair at the gallery. We’re looking forward to welcoming the very best in contemporary printmaking. Visitors to the fair will be able to buy affordable and original art, direct from the artists.
Jim Creed, Regional Print Centre Coordinator said:
‘We are excited to be working in partnership with MOSTYN to organise the Print Fair. It is a great opportunity for printmakers to showcase their work in a nationally important gallery. It also makes printmaking more accessible by giving visitors the opportunity to ask questions, see printmaking demonstrations and purchase original artworks.’
