Through lectures, demonstrations and practical exercises, this course will guide participants through this printmaking process. Be inspired as you transform your existing drawings, paintings or photographs into imaginative fine art prints, which will be printed in a variety of colours on state of the art paper.

Sea Scrolls. An exhibition of scrolls by members of NPW

Celebrating 50 years of print – Art Sytems Wickham
21st – 30th October 2016
Sci-fi writer H.P. Lovecraft once said that the ocean "is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time." We land-dwellers can sometimes take the ocean for granted, but we really shouldn't, since the Earth's surface is 70% water. When you think of it that way, this is the ocean's planet, and we're just guests.
Opening Friday 21 October from 6pm. All welcome!
