Printing Workshops @ No. 42


A unique piece of County Durham history is being used to offer art lovers the opportunity to step into the shoes of one of the region’s best-loved artists.

A printing press, owned by mining artist, Tom McGuinness, has been installed at No.42, Bishop Auckland for a special series of art workshops.
For decades, Tom used the large, cast-iron press to make powerful artworks, reflecting his experiences of life underground and in the mining communities.

Now, guided by his former student, Elaine Kenyon, artists of all ages and abilities can follow Tom’s creative processes to create and inscribe their design before having their artwork printed on his own original press. Elaine, who was taught by the artist from 2004 to 2006, will be running the two-hour workshops on selected dates throughout the year.

Be inspired by the talents of mining artist, Tom McGuinness, as you experiment with your own original prints created on Tom’s original printing press. Suitable for experts and complete novices alike.

All Printing Workshops are £5 per session, pre-booking is required and is on a first come, first served basis. For more information or to book a place, email or call 01388 743 797.
