Annie Fforde artist/printmaker
Annie Fforde is an artist/printmaker with over 20 years printmaking experience. Recently returned from living and working in French Catalonia, Céret where she was running a printmaking centre as president. Leading workshops for the ex-libris group in Céret in “La Grange” and a local college, Jean Amade, the printmaking members were encouraged to have a high standard of work suitable for showing in International and National exhibitions, exchanging work with other printmaking groups. Printmaking workshops include monotype, lino, woodcut, dry point, carborundum, collagraph and viscosity prints. An experimental approach to printmaking methods is encouraged combining different techniques of print.
