4PRINTmakers are a group of women artists who have come together to share their work and practice. Working as an artist is a notoriously solitary pursuit, whereas joining together as a group has helped to inspire, encourage and motivate them all.
Each person comes from a different artistic background: ceramics, graphics, textiles, painting and community arts, but they have found common ground in printmaking. Having met at Gainsborough House Print Workshop in Sudbury, they have individually developed different styles as printmakers and, between them, use a range of techniques including etching, linocut, woodcut, screen printing and collage. It is specifically this variety within the group that appeals, contrasting and yet in no way conflicting, their different styles are complimentary to one another.
“It was the recognition of this diversity that inspired us to join forces and exhibit together – that, and the fact that we like to meet up for tea and cake!”
