The Print Studio has not been quiet over Christmas. I've somehow managed to acquire and then sell a letterpress cabinet, provide open access to artists (with deadlines!), rejig the website (slightly - hope you like it) and print some of my own work.
I'm hitting the ground running and wishing you all a great 2020.
I feel like it's going to be a good year, we just need to get in touch with our roots and look after ourselves and others.
ps. The Hare is printed from an old metal block that is a reproduction of Thomas Bewick’s original wood engraving, made in 1825 for the History of Quadrupeds. I’ve a feeling blocks such as these were made for printers to print on paper bags, greetings cards and other ephemera. I have printed it on dampened handmade paper (washi, cotton, linen, abaca and recycled mountboard, also made in the studio). You can buy the print as a greetings card in the Print Studio for £3.00 each, for a limited time. Oh and there's also a badger.
