We are looking for young self-motivated artists from sub-Saharan Africa who are excited by being offered the time, space, and resources needed to explore printmaking and create new work in a unique rural setting at The Artists’ Press near Mbombela and White River in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
The chosen applicant will be provided with studio space and time in collaboration with Mark Attwood (Tamarind Master Printer) to produce a suite of prints (either lithograph, monotypes or linocuts – or a combination of all three techniques).
