The Project facilitated the upgrading of skills of the four participating artists in photo screenprinting techniques. It then provided the infrastructure to offer a completely new series of workshops to our client groups.

Aims of the Project:

To upgrade the skills of the four artists: it involves pooling skills within the group but also paying for tutors from other printmaking organisations to provide training sessions at Swansea Print Workshop.

To bring an awareness of photo screenprinting to a public that is mainly unaware of the many forms of printmaking. Photo screenprint is an exciting way of producing an image with photographic imagery.  The project will benefit people of all ages, abilities and experience, whilst giving them the opportunity to work together in a group environment. It will also boost their self-confidence possibly with a view to aiding in new career ambitions or simply to increase their knowledge and awareness of new skills.

Participating artists:

Elissa Evans

Lucy Donald

Judith Stroud
