Green Door Printmaking Studio is Derbyshire’s only open access artist studio dedicated to the art and craft of innovative and environmentally sound printmaking.
We research, develop and teach the very latest techniques and processes for innovative and environmentally sound printmaking. We are building a local, national and international artist’s community of printmakers dedicated to safer printmaking practices by inviting contributions to our projects, exhibitions and print exchanges. We strive to raise the profile of printmaking as a primary art form with a long and distinguished history.
Since Green Door Printmaking Studio was first established, it has been our main target to nurture and support our artists. It is a natural side-effect of printmaking that it draws people from all backgrounds and practices and joins them together into a vibrant and supportive community.
Unlike a lot of other creative pursuits that can become solitary, printmaking in an open access environment can be a communal and often surprisingly inspiring and rewarding activity.
At Green Door, we actively promote printmaking and our printmakers, helping them to develop their individual practices and creativity. We maintain a friendly and sensitive approach to all of our artists and through mentoring and Anna’s background in Art Therapy are able to bring together a wide range of people to work in our studio.
We are also interested in supporting our local small businesses and creative endeavours.
