Double Elephant group statement
Double Elephant Print Workshop is celebrating 21 years in 2018. This exhibition would be a marvellous kick-start to this anniversary year!
Double Elephant is a fine art printmaking workshop, which provides resources, tuition and support to complete beginners and experienced artists alike. In our specialist studio at Exeter Phoenix, we run a weekly schedule of open-access printmaking, regular and one-off courses, editioning and one-to-one training. We have 100 Full and Associate members and tutor 300 learners each year.
We also take our portable printmaking equipment into schools, hospitals, community groups and more, working with around 3000 people each year, aged 3 to adult.
We are passionate about printmaking – it offers unlimited scope for experimentation, uses many different approaches with a variety of results and holds countless surprises even for seasoned printmakers. It is also a wonderful way to introduce people, whatever their age, experience or perceived level of ability, to the joy of creating beautiful art for themselves.
