The Oyster Festival begins

Luckily for us the Print Block  
studio is perfectly placed on 
the beach where the Landing of 
the Oysters Ceremony marks the 
beginning of the Whitstable 
Oyster Festival. These are some
examples of work produced during 
our week of daily screenprinting 
demos by Suki Hayes Watkins, 
Maria Clemen, Ruth McDonald, 
Robert Clarke, Karen Radford and 
textile artist Oywah Chung. We 
had members print sales throughout 
the week and a beautiful selection 
of screenprints by our editioning 
artist Paul Bommer. 'Print your 
own Pirate flag' was hugely poplar 
and we were inundated with children
keen to try their hand at printing. 
A big thank you to everyone who 
supported us and helped towards  
making this a really great Oyster
