An exhibition of work by artists from Lancaster’s new Iron Press Printmaking Studio is now on display in The Dukes gallery until June 5.

This is a first by IPP, a fine art printmaking facility which opened at The Storey in September for anyone interested in print and printmaking techniques including etching, drypoint, collagraph, carborundum, mono-printing, linocutting, woodcutting and wood engraving.

IPP Director, Iain Sloan said: “I set this up because Lancaster, as far as I am aware, has never had a printmaking facility like this that provides open access to the public.”

The work of around 35 people from experienced printmakers and professional artists to complete beginners, with a wide selection of prints in a range of techniques, features in the exhbition which can be viewed during normal Dukes opening hours, but if you are making a special trip, call the box office on 01524 598500 as sometimes the gallery is used for other activities.
