Studio News Edition 10: 29 May 2020

Welcome We’re in to Week 10 of lockdown and with summer almost upon us we thought we could probably all do with a change of scene. Prints, indeed all the pictures we choose to have around us offer a view into another world. This maybe an actual location complete with recognisable features; souvenirs of places visited; imagined places or perhaps an image that invokes a sense of place or the experience of being somewhere other. With so many weeks spent at home the pictures we have around us become our windows, a view to another time and place. In much...

Studio News Edition 9: 22 May 2020

Welcome Thank you to everyone who shared, tweeted and liked posts for The Late Shows. It was lovely to be reminded of past events and to see photos of treasured printed things kept long afterwards. We were also extremely grateful for the donations made to our new ‘donate’ page on our website. We are working hard to plan for a phased-return for studio users later in the summer. This is our priority ahead of classes and courses or gallery exhibitions which will take more time to work through. All of this will take a lot of thought to plan new...

Welcome First of all, thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our short survey.

One change we have made is to add in the option for remote technical support outside of normal hours for those studio users who are working. We have also really valued the positive feedback and kind words of encouragement. There is still time to complete the survey by clicking here. It takes less than 5 minutes and is really helpful to Northern Print....

Studio News: Edition 6: 1 May 2020

  Welcome Louise Bourgeois, from ‘10am is When You Come to Me’ a series of 20 etchings with watercolour, gouache and drawing. The hands are those of the artist and her assistant Gorovoy. “The depiction of hands and arms reaching across the expanses of paper in this work parallels Bourgeois’s description of being pulled out of a well, suggesting that Gorovoy’s presence remedied the artist’s feeling of isolation. The title of the work, 10 am is When You Come to Me, is a reference to the time of the morning when Gorovoy would arrive at Bourgeois’s studio or home to begin...
