This November the Sheffield Printmakers will be exhibiting at the Barn. The group has a broad and inclusive membership encompassing all forms of printmaking with a primary aim to promote printmaking as a creative force in Sheffield and beyond.
The group was set up in 2014 and currently consists of around 32 members spread across Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Members are teachers, graduates, self-taught, ex part-time college students and regular workshop members.
The range of work is extraordinary and displays a high level of creativity, professionalism and technical expertise. Members work with a wide range of techniques including lino printing, collagraph, etching, mono-type and intaglio. Some members work with editions of prints and others produce one-off pieces which may include other mixed media techniques.
The group and it’s individual members have an extensive exhibiting history, both locally and nationally.
