In 2008 , as part of the Pastons' Country project, writing and printmaking workshops explored the world of the Paston letters and the landscape and buildings of Paston today. There were opportunities for collaborative work between artists and writers on the project.
We combined the collaborations with an exploration of modern printmaking techniques – “ very suitable as the Pastons wrote their letters in the period when the first paper mill was built in England and the first printed books were published.
Our innovation has been in the use of non-toxic intaglio printing in the making of images and words. The final product is a beautiful, hand-printed, limited edition book, and there will also be exhibitions of the work produced during the project.
