Talking Art Sessions

Discover what inspires print-makers around the world in a series of talks exclusively for West Yorkshire Print Workshop.
 
In the Talking Art Sessions, UK and international artists get into the detail of their methods and muses from how they started to where they are today. It’s an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal (from a distance, of course!) and better understand printmaking and printmakers. Whether new to print making or an experienced technician, mix up your routine with a Talking Art session. Keep an eye open for new talks being programmed in for later this year. In the meantime, why not purchase some recordings of previous talks?
