The ‘Going, going, not quite gone!’ exhibition was a successful end to the young volunteers project. The private view was a lively event and over 60 attended the show including the participants, their friends and families, as well as local art galleries and establishments.

Swansea Print Workshop would like to thank all who came to see the show and those who took part in the programme.

‘This exhibition made me smile especially the birds, the bat, and the dinosaur.’ Susie Wild

‘I knew the outcome would be as good as it is having witnessed the enthusiasm and drive of the “team” who took the project out into the community. Well done to all concerned. Excellent work.’ Alan Figg (Director at Swansea Print Workshop)

Workshop: Open To All

January 26, 2011

Today the community artists led a collagraph workshop for people in the local area. Nine participants, all with various printmaking backgrounds, were involved in the days event! Fleen Doran commented that the workshop was even more exciting and informative than she hoped for, “it was very inspiring. The activities were creative and explained well. Really enjoyed it. Thanks!” Rita Lawrence felt that the collagraph technique  is “a good basic background to etching, etc. The workshop also added encouragement to develop my own work in retirement. A great title for a workshop!”

Swansea Print Workshop would like to thank the South Wales Evening Post for this feature in the ‘What’s On’ section! In the picture: Rosie Hughes.

Working in situ with the portable press from Swansea Print Workshop, part-two of the printmaking programme was dedicated to printing the collagraph plates. The children used a variety of colours in their work and created four unique prints, one of which will be exhibited at Swansea Print Workshop from the 17th of February. The pupils gained an awareness and interest in the biodiversity of the local area through the medium of printmaking. Teacher Kath Angus said “The children found the subject both engaging and interesting. They had to use thinking skills and creative skills to help with their designs.”
