The work of a keen lining printing group is currently on show at Curwen’s Gallery in Royston.

The display, curated by Maggie Allen, began on Tuesday and will feature artwork by members of the Royston Museum lino printing group – led by local artist Liz Beardwell.

Alongside them will be works by Graham Rayner, a talented 3D artist who works with wood and crafts handmade furniture.

The lino printing group meet at the museum once a month, on Tuesdays, where they use the original Crow printing press to produce their own unique lino-cut prints.

The printing press was used to print the very first Crow back in 1855.

The exhibition is particularly special as this will be the first time the group have exhibited their work together.

It will run until Friday, September 2, at the High Street solicitors.

The gallery space at Curwens is open Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

Works on display will include small prints, clocks, boxes and turned wood pieces, which will be for sale.
