OUR HISTORY

Hjørring Graphic Workshop was founded in 1970 when I. Chr. Sørensen's lithographic workshop moved from Copenhagen to Hjørring. The workshop has over time trained significant graphic printers who have established workshops in Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Paris. These include Carl Urwald (UM Grafik), Niels Borch Jensen, Peter Brahmsen (Editions Atelier Clot), Peter Johansen (Hostrup-Pedersen and Johansen) and Jan Anderson (Steinprent).

Since 1985, the workshop has functioned as an artist-run association whose workshops have given artists the opportunity to experiment with the graphic craft and expression. Today, the workshop has a solid local foundation and functions as a creative community for North Jutland artists as well as artists from the rest of Denmark.

THE ASSOCIATION

The association is run by a board consisting of three artists and three business people, all of whom are elected every 2 years at the annual general meeting.
