Little Canyon Printworks
Printmaking

Festival: 2018

Little Canyon Printworks is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that specialises in creative design and spot colour printing. We tend to focus on silk screen as our chosen process because we love the vibrant individuality and density of print you can achieve. There’s no end to discovering all manner of hidden overlapping colours and effects that lend themselves to the medium in a way that makes each and every print an original in its own right.

We make art prints, posters, t-shirts, totes and pretty much anything else flat we can get our hands on as well as running workshops from our cosy studio just near the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway station in Wirksworth. We feel privileged to work in such a beautiful area and wanted to open up our studio to other local artists to share our facilities and workspace as part of our Wirksworth Print Club we try to express the vibrancy and natural drama of the peaks into our work with a strictly eco-friendly approach. No solvents, sweatshops or cutting corners, we’re all about printmaking by hand with water-based inks. We love getting others involved in and will be running a host of printmaking activities for all ages and abilities plus mini-workshops.
