For this weeks Hang Me Up we have chosen this lovely fabric sample by print block member Mathew May. Mathew has been busy working in the studio on a large collection of fabric samples for the fashion industry.
These are a selection of screen prints which were produced by students on our last course before we close the studio for our summer break. They experimented with paper stencils, drawing fluid, photographic stencils, blends and transparent inks sometimes combining processes. Well done everyone! Our next courses will begin again in September please see our website for further details.
'Display Space' is a new exhibition being held at The Beaney Museum in Canterbury featuring work by print block members Sadie Hennessey and Ruth McDonald. This exhibition runs from Sat 26th July to Sun 24th August.
This weekend we opened our studio doors for our annual summer sale giving the public an opportunity to come in and see us and give advice about our work shops, courses and editioning service. We had on sale a huge amount of lovely hand printed goods from our members and clients all of which is printed at the studio. A very big thank you goes out to Whitstable for their overwhelming support this weekend and to all our supporters and first time visitors making our sale a huge success!
Uli Jaeger and Heather Nowak have both attended our one day screen printing workshops at the studio. Uli is currently on one of our 5 week printing courses and on Saturday they both booked the studio for a days tech support with Karen to explore their printing ideas.
Its that time of year and our increasingly popular summer studio sale is coming up fast. A perfect opportunity to buy hand printed goods direct from our members and editioning artists including original prints, textiles, cards & gifts. Dates are Sat 19th & Sun 20th July from 10-5pm. We hope to see you there!
