Primary Prints 2010.

Primary schools from the North west and beyond have been experimenting with print at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester during 2010. Working with artist and printmaker Alan Birch,pupils have produced drypoints and relief prints at the gallery inspired by the permanent collections and the Talking Walls exhibition. Pupils have been amazed to see their prints as they personally print them on the portable printing press.
