Crescent Arts supports and promotes contemporary visual arts practice; we nurture emergent artistic talent, and enable greater access to the visual arts. Crescent Arts focusses its work in three main areas: an exhibition programme; subsidised studios and open access facilities for artists; opportunities for learning, training and development for artists, visitors, young people and all other members of local communities.
Artist studio or collective, Gallery
During exhibitions, the gallery is open from Thursday - Saturday between 11.00 am and 4.00 pm, or as advertised. Visitors are also welcome by appointment.
Admission is free
Crescent Arts provides a workshop programme and access to facilities in printmaking and ceramics. Artists and groups can hire space and facilities on a daily basis by arrangement and booking.
Wheelchair access is difficult, but we are happy to assist through prior arrangement.
Collagraphs in Colour (multiple plates)
- 25 June 2016 10am-4pm
This workshop will introduce participants to creating colour prints with multiple plates. Using two or three plates, each holds different elements of the image and is inked in a number of colours. The paper is passed backwards and forwards through the press, each time with a different plate. A collagraph print is created using a collage printmaking technique. The collagraph plate is printed the same way as an etching plate, but the process also includes the basic principle of relief printing and images can be printed as either relief or intaglio.
- Not suitable for children
