Black Country, West-Midlands
Gathering Press is an ongoing project and mobile screen-printing unit. Designed to open temporary messy and creative space, the project considers how the narratives of place may be translated through making together. Drawing upon ideas of social sculpture, feminist geographies and printmaking collectives, the press allows exploration into what might happen when printmaking is unhinged from a single location. Initiated in 2020 with support funding from Creative Black Country and the University of Wolverhampton, the press is a conduit for research into how a ‘social infrastructure for printmaking’ may emerge.
