Cardiff Print Workshop opens new work space
The Cardiff Print Workshop will open an additional work space this weekend, and will mark the occasion with a new exhibition and demonstration of the art form.
Cardiff Print Workshop's new work space
The Cardiff Print Workshop is a not-for-profit organisation which has been running for over 20 years.
Work by Cardiff Print Workshop members Lauren Burgess, Sally Williams, Teresa Bridger and Sue Paton
It provides printmaking facilities for artists and new graduates, with many of the workshop's members having graduated from the fine art printmaking degree at UWIC, now the Cardiff Metropolitan University.
CPW will take over a new space at Unit 32 Market House, just across from Chapter Arts Centre in Market Road, Canton.
It will open tomorrow, Saturday 10 December, from 10am-6pm. There will be a print demonstration, running from 1-3pm, and an exhibition of prints by the current workshop members.
The exhibition will include examples of etching, lithography, monoprint, linocut, woodcut, collograph, drypoint and more.
This new space in Canton will be in addition to the CPW's existing workshop in the Howardian centre in the Penylan area of Cardiff, where the organisation offers intaglio facilities and also stone and offset lithographic print facilities.
Cardiff Print Workshop was originally set up in Tyndall Street where it remained until 1990, when the redevelopment of the Cardiff Bay area meant that the site had to close.
In 1991 the voluntarily-run workshop moved to the Howardian Adult Education Centre in the city, where members began running classes for the general public to get involved with and to learn more about the art form.
