Enduring Marks – Printmaker’s Toolkit Session – September

Enduring Marks – Printmaker’s Toolkit Session – September

Join Artist and Printmaker Maggie Thompson for our September printmaker’s toolkit session. Maggie has recently graduated from the MA Fine Art course at Manchester School of Art, and has joined WYPW to continue her work. She will talk about her current printmaking practice, and demonstrate inking and printing one of her etching plates from her current series.

The focus of Maggie’s practice is etching on steel, being drawn to the way print making is a binding together of conceptual opposite; such as its ability to make visible something which is absent and the mirroring of the plate and print. Aiming always to ensure that the way she works upon the metal has a coherence with the subject matter, the marks upon the plate are both deliberate and the result of chance, influenced but not controlled. Her recent work has been concerned with an exploration of space, transitory liminal space, heterotopic space, and the virtual infinite space of the mind within the finite space of the body.
