Pressing Matters magazine - Issue 6
It’s great to see that both local and global communities are thriving – all championing their favoured techniques, whilst celebrating printmaking as a whole. It’s something we strive to echo in the magazine; community-led stories from the USA and South Wales, shared experiences of balancing parenting with printing, new spins on old techniques and everything in between.
The magazine is also an opportunity to ask questions, like ‘How do they make paper?’ or ‘What is wood litho?’ – and the geekier the question, the more interesting the answer, it seems. It was a real treat to visit St Cuthberts Mill to witness their paper-making process and chat over the challenges they face in making paper that will withstand even the harshest of treatment in the hands of printmakers.
As (featured artist) John Pedder’s print so nicely puts it, ‘Knives are for creating, not destroying’ and we aspire to be a positive voice on all things inky, doing our bit to inspire and educate.
