Dundarave Print Workshop turns 50

A booklet gives the history of the workshop, written by Janet Nicol, designed and produced by Lone Tratt. $20 (TR Trades, Vancouver, 2021.)

Dundarave Print Workshop, a gallery-studio on Granville Island, celebrates 50 years as the oldest, continuous printmaking workshop in British Columbia. A limited edition history of the printmakers’ non-profit collective, with photographs and a cover print, is available for purchase at the front counter. Check hours of business at the DPW website. Also note: Copies also for sale on Granville Island at Malaspina Print Workshop, Opus Art Supplies and Upstart and Crow books.

Also watch for an upcoming on-line article in Montecristo magazine about the origins of the workshop out of a garage in the West Vancouver neighbourhood of Dundarave. Bert Charles Binning (1909-2976), a renowned artist and “mover and shaker”in Vancouver’s cultural community, was the driving force behind setting up the workshop, along with Wayne Eastcott, a professional artist, now residing in Japan.
