BLACK CHURCH PRINT STUDIO GUIDED WORKSHOP TOUR & PRINTMAKING DEMONSTRATION 12pm, Thurs 3rd May 2018 Studio Manager, David McGinn will give a short history of the Black Church Print Studio and a guided tour over the three floors of the printmaking facility. He will provide an explanation of the various printmaking processes including screenprinting, etching, lithography, relief and digital printing. There will be a wide selection of Studio members work on view throughout the Studio demonstrating various styles and printmaking processes which will be referenced as part of the tour. Established artist and Studio Member, Vincent Sheridan, will provide a printmaking demonstration on the etching floor. Visitors will get to experience first hand the precision and skill involved in making a print. It will give participants a comprehensive understanding of the printmaking process and hopefully a deeper appreciation of this art form. The estimated duration of the tour will be 50 mins.
