Currently following in Phil’s print room footsteps is Helena Moock, daughter of our Director of Printmaking Hilary Daltry. Helena will be on hand as print technician for both our Thursday and Friday printmaking classes.
‘Learning from the best, Phil Gibbs, has been a great experience and over several weeks I got to work with him, shadowing his routine in the print room. Also working at London Print studio where I am on a Traineeship on Saturdays learning how to run the Print room! It is so great to begin working here at Heatherley’s on both the Thursday Advanced class and the Friday print class. As a recent art graduate who specialised in linocuts and intaglio etchings, these are my favourite areas of print and I am looking forward to bringing in new ways of printing. Working with a mixture of students in different techniques, I am learning all the time and hoping to make some improvements as well so the print room can be as great as possible.’
