New screenprint supports apprentice training at The Print Studio, Cambridge
Stephen has recently worked on a new screenprint called ‘Nettle’ with Kip Gresham, Alan Grabham and Callum Rose at the internationally renowned Print Studio in Cambridge. It will be part of a portfolio of five prints alongside work by Willard Boepple, Nigel Hall, Peter Randall-Page and Alison Wilding.
Income from the sale of the portfolios will be used to support the training of Callum Rose, the studio’s new apprentice. The studio Master Printer, Kip Gresham, plans to instruct him in the coming years and is keen to pass on his experience. After almost 50 years as a fine art print maker, there is much technical, collaborative and aesthetic skill to impart. Callum represents a new generation of printmakers who might continue to innovate and excel. The work in the portfolio is a testament to his considerable ability.
