We have a wide range of original prints available in the gallery, both framed and unframed, including Etchings, Linocuts, Screenprints, Wood Engravings and Woodcuts. What is an Original Print? An artist makes an original print as a distinct piece of art. It is not a copy or reproduction of an existing work. There are traditionally four main Printmaking processes - Etching, Lithography, Relief Printing (which includes Linocuts and Wood Engraving) and Screenprinting. To these has been added Digital Printmaking. The processes of Printmaking are technically demanding and each print takes considerable time to produce, being hand printed using non-mechanical methods. More complex prints are printed a number of times, depending on the complexity of the design and the colours used. Prints are generally made in editions and these editions are a fixed number so that the buyer knows how many have been produced. These are then titled, signed and numbered by the artist.
