Shrewsbury high school are the latest and luckiest owners of a Gunning etching press No.2!
Dave, a member of our team delivered and trained Shrewsbury High’s staff members on how to assemble, set up and print on their brand new Gunning etching press.
The students at Shrewsbury high school have decided their Gunning etching press needed its own personal nickname. Students and staff set up a competition suggesting different names until the name ‘Papilon printing press’ was picked.
Students and staff have been so excited to print on Papilon, they have been and visited us here in Ironbridge for an Etching workshop were they learnt how to etch with specialist printmaker Jenny. A group of 5 students spent the day learning how to etch into metal creating their own steel plates.
Students at Shrewsbury High have and are continuing to create some beautiful prints in their own print studio at Shrewsbury high using the printmaking processes taught to them from our team here at Ironbridge printmakers.
We are so excited to see what they continue to print.
Thank you for reading!
All the best,
Ellie & The Team!
