(Open on Saturday 18 March 10am-5pm only)
For Spring Open Studios, Northern Print will open the gallery doors with a brand new exhibition ‘Night Work in the Garden’(on until 29 April). This amazing series of woodcuts are from a collaborative project by Norwegian artists Annette and Caroline Kierulf. Having agreed a common framework for the prints, the two artists (also sisters) make individual artworks. Using the scale and format of posters, these woodcuts use one of the oldest forms of printmaking to explore very current concerns of technology, economy, consumerism and the environment.
After taking in the exhibition, find out how a woodcut print is made and have a go at making your own print. Take a look in the gallery shop with its wide range of original prints, art materials and hand printed gifts and cards.
