Our colleagues at UWE’s Centre for Fine Print Research have pulled together an amazing online summer school, with over 30 artists and writers exploring print-based art at its broadest.
A series of free talks, readings, Q&A sessions and In-Conversations by visiting artists and poets, and CFPR / UWE staff, on: printmaking, artists’ books, poetry, publishing, asemic writing, wellbeing and more. There’s also a series of practical challenges: from a Word Break Exercise with Guy Bigland, to a Toast Painting Challenge by Jessica Ho, Pasta Machine Press DIY printing instructions from Stephen Fowler, and how to make your room into a Camera Obscura with Niamh Fahy.
Presenters and contributors include: Beneficial Shock (Phil Wrigglesworth and Gabriel Solomons in discussion); The One Poem Artists’ Books Library is OPEN (Jeremy Dixon reads Hazard Press, with a live Q&A); Jason Urban & Leslie Mutchler In Conversation with Angie Butler; LCBA Collage Challenge summer holidays postcard Wish I Was Where; talks by Cecilia Mandrile, SJ Fowler, Corinne Welch, Sarah Bodman on artists’ books from the archives; Lucy May Schofield and Hilary Judd Typewriter talks… Plus ‘Shed Talks’ by Gen Harrison, John Bently, Ian Chamberlain, Catherine Cartwright, Abigail Trujillo, Print Van Go, Pat Randle and many more.
