Spring: Saturday 16 March 2024

Visitors could explore our professional printmaking studio, browse the Society of Wood Engravers 86th Annual Exhibition, find out more about printmaking and our open access printmaking studio and shop our stunning range of original prints and colourful gifts.

Meet the Makers
Two of our studio members (Peter Tayler and David Chappel) were on hand to explain to visitors about their work and approach to the wood engraving process. 

Try your hand at making your own masterpiece
Visitors could print and take away their very own Thomas Bewick Hare print using our Adana press.

From the archive
Continuing with the wood engraving theme we showed a series of prints by Hilary Paynter MBE from the ‘From the Rivers to the Sea’ commission for Nexus Metro, which was celebrating its 20th Anniversary year, along with a video of Hilary discussing her practice for Glossary: how and why artists make prints, a commission by Northern Print.
