Fly Post – Redruth Press
21 October, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Notice – Change of Location: Due to unforeseeable issues with the original location, the Clotworthy Building, this event has been moved to the former Lloyds Bank building, 27 Fore Street.
Redruth Press will be fly posting a new set of posters on to one of their poster walls on Redruth Fore Street, designed to generate discussion with the general public as they are put up and over the weekend of Flamm. The work asks where Redruth is now, how this sits with our past, and ideas for our future.
Practicalities: The site is wheelchair accessible.
About the Artist
Redruth Press is a collaboration between two artists, Caroline Wilkins and Tony Minnion. They use a mobile screen printing workshop to instigate conversations at different places and events in Cornwall. They also run workshop sessions with hands-on engagement sharing accessible poster printing processes.
Redruth Press reproduce their punchy poster designs in a range of different products for public display.
Caroline Wilkins is a print maker/contemporary artist working with print processes on and with objects to make large scale installations. With over 25 years of teaching experience, including many spent working with children excluded from mainstream education, she now delivers printmaking classes for adults and works on commissioned art projects.
Tony Minnion is a contemporary landscape painter who paints on the Cornish North Coast. He learned screen printing at 16 and has used it for political and social engagement across the community ever since. He works in combination with digital processes to create individual and large collaborative art works for public display in various forms including banners, flags and hoardings. He also specialises in working with people who are Neurologically-diverse.
