As the current Badger Press team face their final three months of tenure, they are looking back on two years of activity with some “best of” courses. The three directors will each teach a session, Gocco, Relief Printing and Letterpress respectively.
Currently there are a number of interested parties keen to take over the running of the Press and owner Mike Griffiths would like the facility to continue to operate and continue to serve artists and printmakers with high quality facilities.
If you’re keen to get involved or think that you might want to run a busy little studio, then please get in touch, this is an amazing opportunity to be at the heart of artistic activity in Hampshire.
The team will be having farewell drinks on Friday 2nd December at The Priory Inn just opposite Claylands Road, Bishops Waltham. Please feel free to join them and keep an eye out for some exciting new projects from the three of them. As Stephan Casper (one of the Badger Press team) says: “We’re leaving the Press better off, we’re so proud of all our artists, so much amazing work, exhibited locally and internationally. We have all learnt so much, we’re definitely going to take our energy elsewhere, we’re moving on and we’ve got big plans.”
Strong Island wish them every success for the future.
