Penryn Arts Festival: Woodblock printing workshop & meal with Adrian Holmes

Penryn Arts Festival
Date and Time
Mon 6 November 2017

      18:00 – 21:30 GMT

After a short break in 2016, Penryn Arts Festival is back celebrating the creative spirit that lives in Penryn’s community and the artisanal skills that are flourishing in the town and the wider area. To reflect this we are taking a new approach and instead of the usual 3 day festival there will be a programme of events, workshop and screenings in across Penryn from October – December.

Each event will explore a different aspect of making and craftsmanship: revaluing haptic reasoning, local historical connotations and connections to making, as well as the subversion of ancient methods and traditions through contemporary art.

This years festival is run by Field Notes; which is the collaborative practice of Cornwall based curators and producers, Cat Bagg and Rosie Thomson-Glover.

Awagami mini print festival
Oct

to Oct 31

Awagami mini print festival

A few prints featured in this year Mini-Print Exhibition in Tokushima, Japan.
The Awagami International Mini-Print Exhibition (‘A.I.M.P.E’) was first held in 2013, a second in 2015 and now the third installment is proudly launched here in 2017. We are both pleased and humbled to announce that the number of entries has grown with each of the 3 exhibitions and that the 2017 edition of A.I.M.P.E features a total of 1,347 miniprints submitted from 1,010 artists hailing from 54 countries.

A.I.M.P.E’s unique feature is that all works must be printed on Japanese washi paper of any type. This guideline was established in a concerted effort to introduce artists to the unique character and beauty of washi. In particular, we believe that Printmakers will enjoy using traditional Awa washi papers, which are both regional and cultural treasure. As organizers, it is encouraging to see A.I.M.P.E continue to grow and hear the positive reactions to our efforts of promoting washi and contemporary printmaking.
