To all print makers, new visitors and existing members of the badger press. Many of you will have heard the exciting news, but just in case you haven’t, I’m very pleased to say we’re back, up and running and our doors are open to the public once again!
It’s been a busy few months since we had to close our doors after Stephan and the previous team stepped down at the end of January. Since then we have been working hard to retain the facilities and keep the press open and available to it’s users.
Hopefully our recent shutdown hasn’t caused too much disruption to your printing activities and you’re itching to join us, get printing and explore new creative possibilities. The press will run with a very similar methodology to that it had before with a few tweaks and changes. We are an open access fine art print studio, offering courses to suit everyone, providing studio hire and training in all aspects of printmaking whilst promoting printmaking and supporting artists. We’ll be updating the website over the next couple of weeks with revised information and a new course programme, so stay tuned!
The new course programme will be up and running very soon with the return of many of your favourite courses and tutors as well as some new faces with new and exciting processes. As always if you can’t find the course you are looking for, or there’s a process that you are itching to learn that we don’t currently offer then please get in touch and we will do our best to find a tutor and develop a course to meet your needs. Equally if you think you have what it takes to teach a course or have a unique process you wish to share with others then please get in touch, we’d love to have you on board!
Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the previous team for all the hard work they have done over the last two years, especially Stephan; without his input and continued support, advice, guidance the press would be in a very troubled situation and I would not have been in a position to continue his great work. Also, a massive thanks those who have helped out over the last couple of months, your hard work and continued support have been an inspiration; it’s very much appreciated.
If you have any queries, suggestions or want to get involved then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Hope to see you at the press very soon!
