Cranfield are delighted to be sponsoring Print day in May!

For over ten years, printmakers have devoted the First Saturday in May to printmaking. What began in California has become a worldwide event. In 2018, artists from 46 different countries and all 7 continents participated!

Participation is easy. Just make a print on 4th May, 2019! Let the world know what you are doing by chiming in on the Print Day in May blog, Instagram and Facebook page and send photos of your prints, your studios and your printmaking friends. Invite guests and friends to share your love of printmaking. Complete an edition, try a new technique, make a footprint in the sand or snow, use a potato, make handprints… just print, enjoy, share and let us know about it!

Come on in! It’s lovely at this time of year!
