Sir Peter Blake will discuss the many ways an image can be created, with particular reference to his new project ‘Ways of Making’, in conversation with Helen Rosslyn, Director of London Original Print Fair.

In this event Peter Blake will be in conversation with Director of London Original Print Fair, Helen Rosslyn to discuss Blake’s new project Ways of Making – which investigates the diversity and range of processes at the disposal of an artist. The project is working towards a comprehensive survey of print edition making, celebrating both traditional skills and new techniques and materials. Ways of Making is organised in partnership with Worton Hall Studios. Dr Carinna Parraman, Professor in Design, Colour and Print at the University of the West of England, will join the event to discuss the University’s involvement and research on the project.

Recognised as one of the founders of British Pop Art, painter and printmaker Sir Peter Blake is renowned for his connection with the music industry, having created iconic album covers for the Beatles, Paul Weller, The Who, and Oasis. During the 1960s and 70s, Blake taught at St. Martins School of Art, Harrow School of Art, Walthamstow School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Knighted in 2002, Blake has regularly exhibited his artwork in solo shows and retrospectives and is represented in major collections throughout the world.
