The Print Social
The Print Social was formed by a group of friends in Liverpool who are excited about traditional print methods and were looking for a way to meet similar folk. The group is intended to provide a platform for both experienced and inexperienced printmakers (as well as those who have yet to try printmaking) to share knowledge and get involved in exhibitions and bigger projects.
We organise a meetup every couple of months to get out of the studio, grab a coffee or a beer and chat about what we’ve been working on. This gives us a great opportunity to discuss ideas, solve technical problems and share tips on the best places to buy materials.
