Printwalks is a landscape-based printmaking collaboration between Catherine and Martha Orbach. They make nature-based prints – charting the seasons through walking, observing botanical detail, drawing and translating ideas into print. It begins with drawing – observing, learning, and then develops through conversation into stencils, and then the final designs are screen printed.

They are both experienced artist facilitators, and have worked with a diverse range of groups. Martha is also a community gardener, and recent collaboration: The Garden, was an ambitious series of prints commissioned by Open Society Foundation about plants, gardens and rebuilding life after torture.
