Fife+ Dunfermline Printmakers Workshop
Dell Farquharson Community Centre,
Netherton Broad St.
The workshop will be open
from noon until 4pm.
This year visitors will also have the chance to purchase prints from the workshop’s most recent collaborative venture 20:20 Print Exchange. The initiative started in 2009 as a project between Hot Bed Press in Salford and Red Hot Press in Southampton. This year the exchange involved 392 artists from 30 print studios from across the UK and Ireland producing a staggering 9,800 prints. Every artist that takes part is asked to produce an edition of 25 prints and in return they receive a boxed set of 20 randomly selected prints (including their own). Ten artists from Dunfermline Print Workshop took part. We’ll be selling off prints from this exchange to raise funds for the workshop. There are only one of each so first customers get the pick of the bunch.
Chair of the workshop Steve Ratomski said: “We were really pleased to be part of this initiative and hope to exhibit the 20:20 Print Exchange in Dunfermline later in the year. In the meantime people can get a preview of the work and buy some original artwork for their home at a very reasonable price.
“I’m also delighted to announce that several of our members are exhibiting in the Royal Scottish Academy’s Open Exhibition taking place in Edinburgh in the run up to Christmas. This is the most prestigious open-submission exhibition for small works in Scotland and shows the calibre of artist Dunfermline workshop attracts.”
Refreshments will also be on offer including mulled wine and mince pies so make sure you bring your friends and family, and a driver!
