Shiritori Press was a collaborative printmaking project between myself and Alina Tang that centred around a small and (relatively) mobile etching press we purchased together in 2012 while students at Curtin University. As Shiritori Press we co-ordinated exhibitions, conducted a tour of eastablished printmaking institutions, and facilitated sever public printmaking demonstrations and workshops around Perth.
Below is details of some of Shiritori Press' activities.
Alina Tang's current work can be seen on her website.
