Medium-sized Manhole

24 Jul

I did some prints from street manhole covers along Swansea’s High Street as part of the Gwyl Troublemakers Festival a couple of weekends ago. I worked with some other printmakers from Swansea Print Workshop and we inked up all the way along the street. We wanted not only to take printmaking out into public, it’s often closeted away in specialist studios, but we also wanted people to stop and look at the lovely designs under their feet.

These tell a history too, they come from different eras and have different purposes. They’re just as valid as the buildings, except people notice buildings more.

 

No time to rest ….. this is coming up in a few days …..
