Printmaking Studio in Nailsea

Catherine Ade By Catherine Ade

Opening a printmaking workshop in Nailsea that specialises in Lithographic Printmaking. Offering classes, open access membership, edition printing and a lithographic plate graining service.

Nailsea Delivery stage

pledged of £3,547

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

To open a lithographic printmaking studio in Nailsea. I am a lithographer with an edition printing background and have collaborated with a variety of internationally known artists. There are no facilities for lithographic printmaking in Bristol or the surrounding areas and I am in the process of getting equipment moved to a lovely new home in Nailsea.

What we'll deliver:

  • Printmaking classes
  • Open days
  • Seasonal events

Why it's a great idea:

This project is exciting because it has so much potential; I hope that my presence in the local community will allow local people to see the unique qualities of lithography as a fine art form, and encourage interest in the process. I will run classes, offer open access membership and also collaborate with artists to make limited edition prints.

Steps to get it done:

  • First printmaking class
