Double Elephant Print Workshop in their own words
Double Elephant is a fine art printmaking workshop, which provides resources, tuition and support to complete beginners and experienced artists alike. Our ethos is one of continuous creative learning and development with a commitment to helping everyone reach the very highest standards.
Our members are very excited by the opportunity to exhibit in such a high profile venue as RAMM and have quickly risen to the challenge; already 37 pieces of RAMM-inspired artwork have been created in just the few short weeks since we announced we’d be entering this competition, with many more works in progress. For some this will be the first time they have ever publicly shown their work.
We have 100 Full and Associate members and tutor 300 learners each year from across Exeter and Devon which should ensure that, if successful, our exhibition will attract good audiences from a wide area. Visitors will find a varied and enjoyable range of work, covering a wide scope of subjects and techniques, and demonstrating the high level of skill our artists achieve.
Double Elephant is about to make a major expansion of our facilities to provide more activity in Exeter, particularly around creativity and health and well-being. Winning this competition in 2020 would be an amazing way to celebrate this and reach new audiences for our work.
