During the summer of 2020 we were able to offer COVID safe workshops in Relief printing, Monotype Printing , Experimental Drawing and Print and Collage. We had to make changes to venues and to numbers attending, but we’re proud to have been able to deliver all but one of our planned events during this difficult year. Particular thanks go to the team at South Square Centre and Ruth Fettis at Block Steady Studio for helping to make this possible.

We had hoped to be able to offer more workshops in Spring 2021 at Bradford College Print Room, alongside our final exhibition, which we originally rescheduled for January-March 2021.

Unfortunately, the second wave of Covid put paid to our plans. The Arts Council has allowed us an extension, and our new dates for the final Inkerwoven show are now October 2022 to March 2023. It’s a long way ahead, but we know it’s going to be good, as the work is all made and ready to hang!

We still have funding for workshops and other activities to accompany the exhibition - dates nearer the time.

Meanwhile ...

... why not try some printmaking at home? Annie and Janine have produced a guide to drypoint using readily available recycled materials.

The ‘Inkerwoven’ project will create new and exciting works of contemporary print in response to the Bradford College Textile Archive collections for a major exhibition at the College’s Dye House Gallery in 2022-23 and will involve audiences in creative experiences along the way.

The group has spent a year researching the treasures of the Textile Archive and making new artwork in response, and providing artist-led workshops and activities for all ages to enjoy, both at the School of Art, making use of its superb printmaking facilities, and at other venues with links to Yorkshire’s textile industry.
