Join us at Stepney Bank for a day in the print shop, producing artworks exploring Newcastle’s role as a long-standing epicentre of print production. Discover 18th-century examples of Geordie printing, such as Trotter Brockett’s dictionary, Mary Astell’s Serious Proposal, and woodcuts by Thomas Bewick. Hear about the hopes and fears of its authors, printers, and booksellers through this fast-paced period of expansion. Celebrate the print history of the city by creating your very own Northern Prints.
