Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the studio has been closed since 19th March, but today's announcment regarding changes to the lockdown makes it possible for use to launch our Autumn programme which will start mid-September.
Because of the restrictions on social distancing, we will be restricting numbers to three people in each workshop and course and we will adhere to the governments guidance on face coverings.
While we are closed, we are seeking funding for future projects and going online with printmaking tutorials. The first of these is Lockdown Printmaking and you can watch the video now by clicking on the link below. There's a List of equipment you'll need on the Latest News page.
Our exhibition which was due to launch on 26th March at The Whistler Gallery in Ipswich has been postphoned. We are grateful to our colleagues at DanceEast who have kindly offered us an alternative slot there later in the year.
In the meantime, we have put the work created for that exhibition on the website and you can see it by going to EXHIBITIONS on the main menu. Please take the time to have a look and let us know what you think. It was created after weeks of hard work by students on our Press Ahead Project and it would be good to let them know that it has finally been seen by the public and what your comments are.
The Tower St Print Project in Ipswich is a friendly, relaxed printmaking studio run by practising printmakers, where you can explore Linocutting, Drypoint Etching and other printmaking techniques in workshops and courses that are suitable for beginners and those with some previous printmaking experience.
We are a Community Interest Company committed to delivering printmaking courses for local people, which we get funded by a range of partners, to ensure that these are free to participants. We are grateful to our funders for making it possible for us to have delivered free printmaking projects at our studio to over 400 people in the Ipswich area since 2017, aged from 18 to 80 years, who may not have been able to access any kind of arts activity. Details of our work in this area are on our community page and news section.
