Long time, no see! I didn’t think there was much point in making contact with you until I had some definite plans in place. This is what I’m thinking:
17 May re-open for Open Access and 1:1 tuition
21 June re-open for bespoke courses –I hate the word ‘bespoke’ but what I mean is that if you contact me with a plan, then we can work something out.
6 September - re-open for scheduled courses
Changes since lockdown:
New Hunter Penrose stereotype proofing press for relief
New cartridge paper: ‘Flat White’ 100% 170gsm recycled paper (including coffee cups) + standard 170gsm cartridge
Portable presses for hire + kit + online support/tuition
New daylight LED panels to be installed in classroom and pressroom
I’ll keep this short and sweet, and I’ll be in contact again early May with more detailed information but please do get in touch if you have any questions, thoughts, news or suggestions. It would be great to hear from you.
ps. A few people have contacted me for advice about buying presses, materials etc. I am here to help and happy to talk printy geek stuff. From my point of view, the more artist printmakers and people providing printmaking facilities and teaching others, the better! Let’s raise each other up! Let a hundred print studios blossom. I’m still thinking on a ‘crit group’ for printmakers. Let me know your thoughts.
