Having successfully raised over £10.000 on Kickstarter, we are excited to announce our launch event will be held next week, on Thursday 25th January at the recently opened Peckham Levels. We’ve been working around the clock in the studio to turn the unused carpark space into a comprehensive screen printing studio. We have prepared a wide range of exciting events for the opening night to give new members and visitors a taste of what’s to come.
Peckham Levels is now open! Thanks to everyone who made it down to the launch party on Friday and stopped by our screen printing station, we hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did! The venue was bursting with amazing food and drink from independent traders, pop up events, exhibitions and talks. If you couldn’t make it, fear not, we’ve created a video from a gallery of photos from the event. Carry on reading to watch a short video of us live printing festive designs by Supermundane.
We have asked some of our favourite artists to create t-shirts exclusively for the 3rd Rail Print Space Kickstarter. One of contributing illustrators is Sam Taylor who has worked with global brands including The New Yorker, Google and Nike. We caught up with him briefly to get a better idea of his design process, inspiration and career plans.
We’re 3rd Rail Print Space and we’re launching London’s biggest open access screen printing facility in the heart of Peckham. The 4000sqft unit will combine paper, fabric and t-shirt printing along with desk and private studio spaces. Our dream is to build a comprehensive print hub and modern learning environment capable of facilitating everyone from curious novices to seasoned print professionals.
