We will soon be starting our new project for 2013-14
In 2014, comes an important and celebratory anniversary for Swansea – a hundred years since the birth of Swansea’s most famous and admired poet in 1914.
Thomas’s legacy – a creative seam - runs deep and wide in Swansea, Wales and across the world. In 2006, the annual Dylan Thomas Prize for young writers was launched. As one of the most prestigious awards for young writers it encourages raw creative talent worldwide exposing the work of a new generation of writers to the public.
Printmaking, like writing continues to evolve, exploring new ideas and new ways for expressing creative ideas: digital prints, digital drawing, e-publishing. At the same time traditional methods have retained their value and in some areas have seen a resurgence such as letterpress, artist books within a contemporary framework.
Through a varied programme of activities Swansea Print Workshop is interested in exploring the themes and ideas and creative process inspired by Dylan Thomas and selected texts from short-listed writers from past and present years of the Prize. Participants would be supported in the creation of prints and artists books through a range of contemporary and traditional techniques.
