Catherine Baker
Spring | 2019

Having recently self-funded a course to learn the complex technique of photopolymer gravure printmaking at the Lux Darkroom in London, Dr Catherine Baker’s QEST Scholarship will fund private tuition there in the most difficult aspect of the process: image preparation and plate making.

Perfecting these initial stages would enable Catherine to become a completely independent maker using this technique. Already teaching regularly as part-time Associate Professor at Birmingham City University and also through non-profit organisations as a volunteer, Catherine is well-placed to share her new skills with emerging craft practitioners.
