Printmaking Studio: Heather Peak
Heather Peak presents a Printmaking Studio as part of Ikon’s exhibition Start the Press! (9 February – 21 April 2024).
Peak is one of eight printmakers who operate an antique, working flatbed printing press from Wolverhampton School of Art: establishing a functioning printmaking workshop, producing original prints and filling the gallery walls as artwork is made in real time. Full schedule available here.
Start the Press! is presented as part of Ikon’s 60th anniversary year.
