The Objects of Durer

Year 10 students from the Albion Academy in Salford spent a creative day working with the artist Alan Birch at the Whitworth in Manchester. The students were given printing demonstrations before drawing from the Durer exhibition. As the students had started a project based on objects they sought out objects from the Durer prints , before adding a contemporary object of their own. These formed the basis of engravings, which were printed by them on a portable printing press. This was their first taste of printing and some excellent prints were taken back to the Academy to enhance their coursework.
