God's House Tower teamed up with local print studio Cowprint, a collection of printmakers from Red Hot Press, with the aim of putting on an exhibition in their Crawford Gallery to commemorate the sailing of the Mayflower.  The aim was for Cowprint, in collaboration with Inky Hands Print Studio and Gallery of Plymouth, MA, USA to present a cross-cultural exhibition of prints titled ‘Navigating a New World' in celebration of the 400th year since the sailing of the Mayflower.  The exhibition  was to involve thirty-seven printmakers, showcasing a wide variety of printmaking processes and technical skills as they drew inspiration from different aspects of the Mayflower’s voyage to the New World.  Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, the exhibition has had to be postponed until 2021.


Both studios have however managed, following Covid guidelines, to create a series of original prints depicting the Mayflower story and its impact, along with two concertina books, which have crossed the Atlantic as part of this exciting international print exchange.  As part of the Mayflower 400 celebrations, God's House Tower has made the decision to put the collection of prints by the Cowprint group online and for sale through their online shop.
