FRI 17 NOVEMBER 2017 – SUN 18 FEBRUARY  2018 (Closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day) || The Great Print Exhibition is the largest exhibition of its kind in the UK. With over 350 framed artworks on the wall by over 60 printmakers from up and down Britain, it’s an excellent chance to see and buy original art. You’ll be able to learn about this widely varied art form, with information on how different prints are made and videos showing artists making their work, along with examples of tools and printing plates used to create prints. On certain days, the Making Space will be occupied by a printmaker, offering live demonstrations as they create new prints right there in the gallery.

The Making Space is an area of the gallery dedicated to Artists making prints within the exhibition. You can talk to them about their printmaking and watch them as they create new work within this miniature studio space. They will also have some of their own work to buy.
