The 2015 print by Karen Pearce, printed by Tamarind Masterprinter Paul Croft is still available. This is your chance to acquire a beautiful print by a well-known printmaker for your collection at a bargain price! The income raised will help Aberystwyth Printmakers continue with their work of promoting and assisting printmaking in Mid-Wales.
To buy, please contact Paul Croft at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gini Wade will give an illustrated talk about her experiences at the 2014 Summer course at the Tamarind Institute, Albuquerque, USA. This talk will be of particular interest to lithographers, as the Tamarind is the world centre of excellence for lithography, but she will make sure that it is interesting for printmakers in any medium (and fans of Breaking Bad!).
