Artworks are delighted to welcome Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop to the Artworks exhibition this year as one of Artworks Supporters. The Print Workshop is a friendly studio established by printmakers in 1978, and several Artworks members are also active members of the Workshop.
On Sunday 7th September 2014, Sue Molineux, Workshop Technician, entertained visitors to the Artworks exhibition with a fascinating display of prints, and explained to visitors how the prints were created.
Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop is run, along with a thriving museum, by Gainsborough’s House Society, an independent charity with educational aims. Recognised as one of the best facilities of its kind in the country, it enjoys a unique setting, opening onto the charming garden at Gainsborough’s House, birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788).
Membership of the Workshop is open to all whether newcomers to printmaking or established artists. Help and advice is readily available and Sue Molineux will arrange an informal induction session for new members. A range of courses are available throughout the year covering all aspects of printmaking and are run by tutors who are well known and respected in their fields.
