Oyster Community Press has teamed up with DanceEast and the National Dance Company Wales for an innovative printmaking project.

The Tower Street Print Project run by Oyster – a community interest company – will be able to sketch and photograph dancers from the National Dance Company Wales as they rehearse at DanceEast for their show Triple Bill on September 22.

The students will then learn etching techniques on September 29 to turn their photos and sketches into dramatic works of art inspired by dance.

It follows on from the successful My Place tie up between the pair.

Robert Smyth, artistic director at the Tower St Print Project, said: “This is a lovely opportunity for people to experiment with the wonderful art form of printmaking to capture the essence of dance on paper.

“We are very excited that DanceEast is offering us spaces at the rehearsal of Dance Wales and look forward to teaching people how to create some unique etchings of the dancers at our workshop.”
