Young Carers printmaking day

Aug 13, 2019

A Young Carers Group, based in Fairycroft House in Saffron Walden, spent a relaxed and fun day with us learning some printmaking techniques as the recipients of a bursary funded by the Alper Trust. They were a real pleasure to have in the studio and had the opportunity to use our historic relief presses dating back to 1860's and our large etching presses. Everyone created some really amazing work using Linocut and Monoprints - seen here, along with Tim Atkinson from Fairycroft House who accompanied them.
"An absolutely wonderful day using the amazing presses. Top class tuition which was enjoyed by everyone".
"I have really enjoyed today - thank you for the amazing experience and a wonderful day".
"Thank you so much for all your kindness and a wonderful day".
"A really great experience being able to use all the different presses. I really enjoyed being able to experiment with different styles and colours".
