So in the studio we have been having the usual workshops and a few commissions. Here are some photos from those. We are also pre-exposing screens and selling inks and squeegees and of course giving advice on all of your print jobs.
So recently the studio has been taking on a variety of commissions and still running frequent workshops. We have also had the local artists in as usual and expanding in terms of the product range as a Permaset and Daler Rowney supplier. Here are a few photos from the last week......and the exhibition in Bristol faturing Jack-Knife! This week we have a t-shirts and tags to print and two workshops to get involved with, we are also still free to give any advice about screens or projects you may be planning.
So this morning I had the pleasure of meeting some of the students from St. Gabriel’s 6th form. We had the screens all pre exposed so they were ready to print. The girls took it in turn to pull their prints and started helping, experimenting and mixing the colours together in no time. We had fun printing onto different materials and they bought in some more textures and fabrics to test too. Miss Dillon had a go too with a Marilyn Monroe print and everyone mucked in trying out a few techniques. We then coated a screen together and exposed...
Just sprayed a little tiger on the wall waiting for a screen to dry. Anyone is welcome to paint the wall!
We have a different take on workshops, we think they should be a time to experiment play and create a range of unusual effects, not just one type of image on one kind of paper. By using a range of experiments the workshops can show you what works best in terms of paper, inks and layout. More advanced workshops can explain the more advanced processes involved in CMYK printing and using photoshop and illustrator to have more control over your designs.
