Printmakers' Corner

Monday 27 November 2017 - Monday 30 April 2018

The Studio Printmakers' is a collective formed in the 1990's by a group of practicing printmakers.

The initial aim was to provide a studio where printmakers could experiment and learn form one another.

It is now a vibrant communal space hosting workshops, exhibitions and tutorships from national and internationally respected printmakers.

On a monthly turn around the Lake House will now have a designated space in the downstairs hallway of the house to exhibit our residents' work on an ongoing basis.
