Neil Morris Outlines a Printmaking Residency at Liverpool Art School

Jutta Vollmer and Andreas Vietz are experienced printmakers and active participants in the Cologne art scene. They established the Kolner Graph ikwerkstatt in 1995 as a reaction to the demand for printmaking workshops upon the closure of the Freien Werkstatten (free workshops) in the early 90s.

They currently have over 50 members and the workshop provides the means for the realisation of graphic expression for a diverse section of the community, ranging from schoolchildren to established artists. The collective also provides a forum for debate and exchange of ideas, which is reinforced by an extensive exhibition programme of prints produced at the workshop.
