This is a picture of the back of my car. It's a big boot, thank goodness, in an old car which is now a pretty established mobile print studio. I've everything I need to teach Lino, wood cut, collagraph, mono print dry point and etching. The crates are interchangeable and organisation in based on a crucial collection of lists that have been perfected over the last couple of years. (I still forget the bin bags on a regular basis).
So I see my portable print studio as an equivalent to the mobile library that used to drive round to the out of the way places every week when I was a kid. Every Tuesday I drive out to one of the local villages to run Steventon Printmakers, a class covering every type of technique we can manage. On Wednesday I teach a small class of teenagers and then I run weekend workshops as well.
There are fantastic print studios all over the uk but unless you're really lucky to live near one, it's hard to get access to classes and equipment if you live out in the country. Especially etching opportunities because of the need for the press. So this is my mobile solution. Rural etching outreach?
Have press: will travel.
