Women in Print: Love and Friendship

24th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

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.

Speakers include:

CAROLYN TRANT Pattern, Politics and Alternative Aethestics in the Womenss Friendship Groups

LOTTE CRAWFORD Enid Marx and the Pioneers of Modern British Craft
