Guest Essays

I feature essays from other print makers, so it’s not just my voice on this site. It is my pleasure to introduce you to these print makers.

My first guest essay is by Peter Williams, a maths student at the University of Manchester, and a rising star, otherwise known as Peter Makes Prints. Peter is an ally, and uses his platform to make SPACE for print makers from marginalised communities. Read the story of Peter’s Teufelssee print here ⬇

The latest essay is from Cath Bristow, of Cath Bristow Prints fame. Cath is a wonder, and her prints are visual delights. In her essay Cath writes about her print making process and how she has navigated printing and lock down. Read Cath’s essay here ⬇
