Church Stretton arts

Three well-known artists will appear as part of the Church Stretton Arts Festival. Paul Hipkiss was recently described as one of the foremost British linocut artists of today and has on four occasions had work featured in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

In a free session on Saturday 5 August from 2-4pm, Paul will demonstrate how he creates his prints, and on Wednesday 9 August he’ll lead an all-day lino-cutting workshop. Landscape painter Di Purser leads an all-day art workshop on Thursday 3 August. Beginners and more experienced artists will be guided in the use of acrylic inks to create interesting effects enhancing watercolour and acrylic paintings. Printmaker David Harban, winner of the Intaglio Printmaker Prize for 2016 at the RBSA, will host a free ‘Meet the Artist’ session on Saturday 12 August from 2-4pm where he’ll explain and illustrate the different print processes he uses. David’s inspiration is hugely varied, from mountains, rocks and trees to cathedrals and cityscapes.

The exhibition at Church Stretton School opens on Monday 31 July at 7.30pm for a preview evening and runs until Saturday 12 August. Opening hours 11am-6pm (7.15pm on performance evenings).
