Founded on the Fish Quay in 1994 and re-homed in the artistic powerhub which is the Ouseburn Valley, Northern Print is the epicentre for printmaking excellence in the North East. Whether etched on copper with acid, created with carved wood blocks or formed through mesh, printmaking is an accessible and fascinating practice which can be appreciated and enjoyed by all.

Northern Print studio artists have created over 60 original pieces for their new exhibition Love Nature More, which runs until September. Inspired by lockdown, during which many people reconnected with and found healing in natural settings, the exhibition seeks to express how the enforced hiatus created a space of uncertainty, observation and reflection on our place in the world. It also acknowledges how we can seek solace in actual, remembered or imagined landscapes and find new ways of living and working that are kinder to nature, and to ourselves.

It’s a beautiful and colourful show, and all prints in the exhibition are for sale (all priced under £100).

For those who find a bit of making helpful in calming the unsettled mind, Northern Print also run printmaking courses for absolute beginners, ‘re-learners’ and folks with more experience.

Love Nature More exhibition is at Northern Print, Newcastle until Saturday 11th September
