Paper, inks, lino, registration boards, cutters, rollers, and cleaners will be provided but the participants are encouraged to bring their own tools if preferred.
Martyn studied Fine Art at Walsall, Leeds, and Birmingham Schools of Art, attaining a BA Hons in the History of Design and Visual Arts. He started his career with West Bromwich Jubilee Arts (now The Public), as a Community Artist within a team of other practitioners, producing mural projects and silkscreen posters, moving in the mid-eighties to the Sculpture Department at the Goldsmiths College of Art in London. More recently he has worked as an Artist in Education, helping both children and adults bring practical solutions to their creative endeavours. After many years of working in 3D, Martyn has returned to his earlier passion for 2D colour & design, drawing great inspiration from the golden age of the 1930’s travel posters.
