Prior Shop is thrilled to host a collaborative exhibition celebrating the work of members of the Spike Print Studio, displaying the breadth and diversity of contemporary print.
Spike Print Studio is a leading open access print studio in the UK and a recognised centre for the exploration and creation of print. It is an important regional asset, and is a dynamic place for all to develop their creativity through printmaking.
The studio provides open access to professional equipment and the expertise of its staff and tutors. Through its Learning Programme, membership, editioning and exhibitions it secures a progressive and confident future for its community, and widens participation in print.
The benefits of an open-access print studio are wide-ranging, whilst the studio has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and attracts artists from a wide range of disciplines.
Spike Island's welcoming attitude towards the creation of print clearly displays their dedication to progression of the medium, saying ‘It doesn’t matter who you are and how you use the studio, the benefits of learning to print can make people happier by enabling them to express themselves, having the freedom to fail, persevere, focus and collaborate.’
Visit the exhibition, enjoy the space, and fall in love with print.
