With everything nearly ready for the first printmaking course, TOGYG artists decided to take the press for a test drive.

It was fantastic. Jo Alexander led the course.  We made a drypoint each and then ran them through the lovely new press. Everything worked beautifully, so now we know that, with a few tiny adjustments, we will be ready to roll in the new year.

For information on membership and upcoming courses, vist Print Studio Bangor, or Stiwdio Agraffu Bangor.
