Print Day in May 2018

Print Day in May 2018

Print Day in May celebrates the art and community of printmakers. It’s a day to get together in studios across the world to make prints.

Each year participation grows; we have had people from Australia, Argentina, France, Mexico, and of course, the United States of America. Printmakers have opened their studios to friends, used their cars as presses, made prints on the beach all to spread the joy of printmaking.

Last year InkMasters joined in and let's make this a successful print day as well.
Date: Sat 11 May 19 Time: 9.30am – 3.30pm
