NIght at the Museum!

New international  students arriving in Manchester, were given the opportunity of working with printmaker Alan Birch as part of a creative taster of what Manchester has to offer.

The workshop based in the rooms housing the fossils and mineral collections, saw over 80 students take part producing some excellent engravings. Some students were drawn to the imposing skeleton of the T Rex.

The social event with drinks and music organised by Manchester Museum and the Whitworth  saw students make new friends and discuss their prints.
