Alan will show a range of prints, created using different print processes. He will demonstrate Dry-Point Printing and the Relief Printing Process and participants will be able to create their own prints.
Alan Birch is an artist working out of Prospect Studios in Waterfoot, Lancashire. He works predominantly in print, but has worked with a variety of other media including drawing, metal and digital images. His work is imbued with his own unique sense of humour, offering a personal view on the contemporary world. Recent work includes a series of 83 etchings strongly influenced by Goya's Disasters of War, illustrating the horrors of armed conflict. He recently showed a collection of contemporary saints at The John Ryland's Library in Manchester and at West Yorkshire Print workshop in Mirfield, Yorkshire. Birch is also a committed educator, running regular print workshops in his studio, in schools and galleries, and more recently in Manchester hospitals as part of the Culture Arts programme. Since January, he has worked in Accrington Academy, Oulder Hill Community School and with members of the African Caribbean Carers Group in Hulme, Manchester Hospitals. He also runs regular workshops in the Whitworth Art Gallery and Touchstones for families, primary and secondary children, and adult groups.
