Northern Print is pleased to announce three new bursaries for emerging artists funded by Idlewild Trust as part of the Nurturing Young Professionals fund.
Making It will provide three emerging artists with a focused period of time in our well-equipped printmaking studio with technical support and materials. The programme will begin with a week-long experimental workshop with access to Northern Print’s facilities, materials and technical expertise. This will be followed by a further period of time in the studio to develop skills and produce a small body of new work.
The facilities include etching, relief and screenprinting alongside associated processes. There is also a darkroom, large format digital printer and lasercutting and engraving machine. The building has level access on both floors.
Work will be shared through digital media with the opportunity to present finished work at the end of the project, either online, in Northern Print’s gallery or external venue depending upon what is most appropriate. We will seek to further support the selected artists via our networks helping to create opportunities to discuss their work with those that can help them build their practice. The aim is that each artist will finish the programme with one opportunity identified upon completion of their time at Northern Print to ensure further progression.
Please note the date for the week experimental workshop will be agreed with the successful applicants and is anticipated to be in July/ August 2018. The programme will conclude in December 2018.
