Dover Studio Collective would like to welcome visitors to their Open Studios, as part of a series of Print Fair events in conjunction with Future Foundry and Dover Arts Development (DAD) in Dover, celebrating the 9th Fête de l’estampe in France. An informal event, this will be an opportunity to view a varied selection of prints while exploring traditional, experimental and practical printmaking processes with resident artists throughout the weekend. Entry to the open studio is free.
Currently in the UK public events or buildings are not permitted to open in a bid to slow the world-wide pandemic. Although restrictions are slowly being lifted and we emerge from lock-down, it is impossible at present to foresee how long certain emergency restrictions will continue for. If it still not possible to open our studios to the public, then the Print Festival event will be hosted across a number of virtual locations, enabling artists to continue to present their printmaking to the public.
Round Table / Table Ronde: Online (Virtual/Zoom)
24 may 19.30 – 21.30
A discussion focusing on how printed marks/printmaking can be integrated or incorporated into other processes: drawing, textiles, etc.
