I joined the council to gain and expand my knowledge from more experienced printmakers.
In 1965 a group of artists including Julian Trevelyan, Michael Rothenstein, Anthony Gross, Stanley Jones and Agatha Sorel saw the need for a society that would promote new developments within printmaking and formed the Printmakers Council. Since then it has consistently promoted the place of printmaking in the visual arts.
In recent years, the Printmakers Council has organized exhibitions in London at the Bankside Gallery, Barbican Library, The National Theatre, The Mall Galleries and the Natural History Museum and throughout the UK inc Scarborough, Rye, Margate, Newcastle, Stockport and Weymouth. Internationally there have been exhibitions in Paris and exchanges with Landau, Germany and the Printmakers of Western Australia.
