Printmaking Studio: Laura Onions
Laura Onions presents a Printmaking Studio as part of Ikon’s exhibition Start the Press! (9 February – 21 April 2024).
Onions 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.
About the artist
Laura Onions is an artist based in Wolverhampton. Her work addresses ideas of place and placemaking from an educational and feminist perspective. Onions’ artwork grows from context specific and archival research resulting in a wide variety of forms including print-based objects, painting, writing and workshopping. Most recently this has taken the form of Gathering Press, a roving screen-printing unit which she travels with to different locations to explore the role of print as a collective tool and resource.
