Waitakere Printers Ink

Print making group

I set up the Waitakere Printers Ink in 2010; a printmaking group who meet once a month at Corbans Art Centre in Henderson, to come together as a group of like minded enthusiasts to share ideas and knowledge, and to use the large etching press, which most of us couldn’t possibly afford to buy personally.  We also aim each year to hold a group exhibition.

Usually around 6 people attend each month, so access to the press is fine.

I was awarded some Creative Communities funding in 2010 & this is how the group was initially financed & set up. 

Thank you creative NZ
