The  20:20 Print Exchange 2014 .

In 2014 we had 581 artists take part from 42 print workshops producing a grand total of 14,525 prints.

In November a team of people worked feverishly to get the prints randomly distributed into boxes, each artist’s box. We also compiled a random box of 20 prints for every 10 artists for each workshop, plus the lovely twinning process linked workshops together, matching each up to receive an identical set of 20 prints, (each with 10 prints from the other workshop and 10 prints from their own workshop).
