Artist Talk with Miguel A. Aragón

Join East London Printmakers for an Artist Talk from Miguel A. Aragón

26th April 2022 @ 6:30pm

Visiting artist, Miguel A. Aragón will be talking to us about his experimental approaches to printmaking within his artistic practice and what he’ll be doing with the ELP studio whist he’s with us for the next two months.

Later in May, he’ll also be running a master workshop in Screen-printing Dry Pigments. So if you love the talk, you can love the workshop too!

You can attend on Zoom or in person at our studio.

But you must RSVP, as we have limited spaces for both!
