[NOTE: We are asking for exhibiting printmakers who would like to take up the opportunity of free studio access time to work on making plates and/or printing artworks during the four days of Creative Open. The aim is to have a dynamic atmosphere with up to four printmakers working in the studio at any one time showcasing a diverse range of media.  Throughout the day volunteers will take turns in welcoming and supervising visitors and processing sales, while the others will be happy to be observed and field questions from visitors.  A seperate form will be circulated for those who wish to put their name down for supervision.]


Accepted prints and cards can be left at the studio, in the exhibitions drawer between the 8th and 22nd July.

Unsold prints are to be collected at the end of the exhibition from 4pm on Sunday 28th July.
