PRINT DAY IN MAY 2015
Printmakers across the globe unite!
12pm – 8pm
This year West Yorkshire Print Workshop will be participating in the international event Print Day in May and we would love for you to join us in our celebrations.
‘Print Day in May’- the first Saturday of the month- began in California, U.S.A, in 2007 and sees participation grow across the world each year; now people get together in Australia, India, Argentina, Mexico and in print studios all across Europe in order to make and celebrate prints.
Here at WYPW we will be hosting a variety of activities throughout this day… the full schedule can be found on our e-invite HERE.
Other activities will include:
- WYPW Print Fair and 20:20 Print Sale
Treat yourself to a print made by one of our talented members and grab a bargain from our 20:20 print sale! Prints from £5.00!
- Drop-in screen printing activity
For £5 you can have a go at screen-printing greeting cards, printed by your very own hands, to send to friends and family.
- Printmaking demonstrations
Ever wanted to get to grips with etching processes? Down in our print room studio-holder Jenny Thomas and board member Ian Wrench will be happy to show you how its done!
