With an extensive creative practice spanning printmaking, performance, bookmaking and concept-driven enquiry, Barbara Campbell will take up residency in the Piscator Press workshop during Semester 2.

Her project ‘A Bird is in the Library’ brings together her passion for print techniques, haiku, libraries, and birds. It anticipates engagement with library users in an imaginative journey via letterpress and the architecture of the library and its systems.

Barbara will also hold two interactive open studios and a book launch exhibition at the end of the residency, see details below.
