Peter Reddick Bursary Award 2022-2023

We are offering a bursary worth £2500 to a new graduate to support their practice in relief printing. We are particularly interested in graduates who are innovative and experimental whilst using the oldest of print techniques. The bursary is for one year and awards membership to the studio with full support, learning opportunities and professional development. 

This bursary is an intellectual and practical challenge. We will support the candidate through our flexible and adaptive approach. 

We hope the successful candidate will have the ability to address the uncertainties of our current time by how they approach the work, manage the work and deliver a final exhibition in September 2023. 

All our past awardees have stated that the opportunity to develop over the year is unrivalled, and the recognition by Spike Print Studio was a huge part of their career development.
