It’s Swansea Print Workshop’s 15th anniversary party this coming Friday 27th March from 7pm with a lovely exhibition of original prints from artists who have produced art here throughout our 15 years. There will also be wine and food and cake and our wonderful antique printing presses. Please pop in and bring your friends if you’re in the area.

And then on Saturday the 28th of March, the Swansea Print Workshop is hosting an Open Studio visit, a behind-the-scenes view of a lively print studio. Drop by and see artists / printmakers at work, our vintage and modern presses in action and the hand made prints created at this thriving artist collective between the city and the beach. Family friendly but small children will need to be supervised. From 11.00 am to 4.00 pm

    What an fabulous space! So many tools to drool over. I hope you have a stunning turnout. Wish I could be there to see it. I’ll just have to wait a bit. 😉

    What a fantastic old press, made back in the days when as much attention was paid to the decoration as the mechanics. I use an old Albion which is a beautiful cast iron construction but it is not as ornate as this beauty.

      I think The Albion is the one before The Columbian, both beautiful machines 🙂
