The Collier and Campbell Archives

A day trip to Rye to the archives of Collier
and Campbell, to meet the very lovely Sarah 
Campbell. Our task, to make selection of 
original textile designs for the upcoming 
Contemporary Open Print Fair at the Sidney 
Cooper Gallery in Canterbury this July.
Collier and Campbell are responsible for some 
of our most famous and iconic textile designs
and the archives were brimming with the most 
wonderful hand painted pictures and fabric 
samples. It was an overwhelming task as we 
only had room for a small selection but it 
made for the most fascinating and memorable 
day out. A big thank you to Sarah for her 
generosity, for making us feel so welcome 
and for giving us both such a special treat.

Karen Radford

This 'cotton drawing' screenprint was
produced by print block member Karen 
Radford, part of an ongoing series of 
spirals she has been working on in the 

Book Binding Workshop

On Sunday the Print Block held another 
book binding workshop with Tish Tunstall. 
Taking part in this class proved to be 
real eye opener. The possibilities are 
endless and the range of creativity was
inspiring...I can't recommend this enough!
There is a follow up class this coming 
Sunday 14th July which will focus on making 
a hardback book and is open to everyone. 
Tish supplies a wide range of decorative 
papers but if you have something special 
you want to use bring it along. For more
