Helen Allsebrook and Sarah Noreen met in Maine, USA in June 2009 after Helen won the Marlin Miller Scholarship to study at at Haystack Mountain School of Craft. As a result, a collaborative print project was created entitled ‘Secrets’.

Fourteen talented practitioners took part: Seven from the UK and seven from the USA creating an edition of fifteen prints each. The show clearly identifies an exploration of hidden meaning and image spanning two continents. The methodologies employed are innovative, varied and a diverse use of printmaking methods are evident throughout.

From the 27th November - 4th December 2009 the resulting work was displayed in F Block Gallery, Faculty of Creative Arts at the University of the West of England before travelling to several institutions throughout the UK and USA.
