Welcome to our website of the CentredeGravureceret.fr
The centre of our association is based in the town of Céret in the Pyrenees Orientales, France.
The workshop La Grange is a converted stable with a large press, provided by the Mairie of Ceret(local council) and supported by the District Council.
The association currently has about 20 print makers both professional and amateur.
The aim of our association “Centre de Gravure” is to promote the awareness of print making and printing techniques in a regional and international setting.
The professional or more experienced artists, share their expertise with the beginners by means of guided workshops, to improve the quality of their print making and help them to learn new techniques.
We have a varied activity programme namely: guided workshops free to members, open studios, artist residencies, workshops and exhibitions both regional and international.
Every year we organise exchange exhibitions with other printmaking groups in France and abroad. These are held in the Mediatheque in Ceret and member’s prints are sent off for exhibition by the participating group.
Members of the group share in many regional events such as the May Open Studio, (Balade en Terre d’artistes), National Print day. (Manifestampe) and the Ceret Book festival
The Centre welcomes everyone, professional or amateur, to share our enthusiasm for print making.
