Student on the (printing) block

BA Education (Art) students took a fresh approach to exhibiting their work during the recent ‘Print as a Verb’ exhibition at the prestigious OpenHand OpenSpace in Reading, with some demonstrating their own very unique print-making techniques.

While Kim Tate showed her printing skills using her wood block designs, fellow Year 4 student Emily Crye took it further, using her own face as the printing ‘block’.

More than 20 artists displayed their individual take on the use of print at the show, which aimed to celebrate and deconstruct print in the realm of contemporary art. There were demonstrations, performances, hands-on opportunities – as well as many inky fingers – by the end of the exhibition in March.
