“Open & Closed Spaces” refers to the breadth of the locality - the area of almost rural calm within a city - which is the view from Highgate so enjoyed by Coleridge. The title also refers to the surfaces in printmaking of the plate or matrix when bitten, scraped, burnished, painted, inked or wiped.
Printmakers Inc. was formed in 2010 with a pop-up shop in Woburn Place, supported by Camden Council. Since then this group has expanded and shown in a number of Affordable Art Fairs in Hampstead.
The group works in a variety of printmaking media including: etching, drypoint, mono print, collagraphy, solar plate, photo/transfer etching and screenprint.
The group will exhibit their work, and their ways of practice, to create a lively and engaging show in the Gallery at HLSI.
Drop-in Printmaking on Saturday 25th November, 2-4pm.
Members of the public are invited to create their own prints fitting with the title “Open & Closed Spaces”. Places are free but are offered on a first-come basis. Participants should bring their own protective clothing but all other materials are provided.
