Update on Home Print Project

Mobile Print Project

With Anna Haydock-Wilson and Amy Hutchings

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Originators Funding by Bristol City Council City Arts Team so we can continue offering printmaking workshops to vulnerable communities across Bristol.

As with our Home Print Project this fund will enable us to support arts activities for young carers and refugee groups and families. These activities will run in partnership with Carers Support CentreBorderlandsRefugee Women of Bristol, Imayla and other organisations supporting people in need. Anna & Amy will cycle quality print making materials into community settings and deliver tailor made workshops in a variety of printmaking techniques. We will provide Zoom workshops to young carers, mentor community facilitators and provide exhibition opportunities.

It is important that SPS can continue to work with our communities until we can safely welcome them back into the studio.  This project maintains strong links with them and when they can come back in the studio, it will not be a formidable individual challenge.

Here is a photo from our first community based workshop, part of the Bristol Refugee Festival 2021, co-facilitated by Anna and Sherien Elsheikh, a member of Bristol Refugee Artists Collective.
