Tirzah Ravilious’ recently republished autobiography, and the beautifully illustrated book accompanying the exhibition by Andy Friend both map and make visible the intangible webs of friendship that evolved within the creative circles of mid 20th Britain. The speakers at this study day will widen this web of connections and offer many other narratives of professional and personal friendship in which print has a pivotal role.
The day will specifically examine the role of print in fostering women’s friendships and relationships, through the sharing of creative outputs and publications, and the role of print in enabling financial independence and mutual support, for instance through shared commercial outlets, clients and studios.
Coffee and tea is included. A cafe is available on site for lunch.
