London’s Biggest Open Access Screen Printing Studio is Launching!
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.
Live Screen Printing Sessions
Thursday 25th January will be the first opportunity for guests to experience London’s biggest open access screen printing studio through interactive series of events. To showcase our commercial grade screen printing equipment, the six-arm carousel will be operating and can be road tested by printing tote bags designed by graphic artist Camille Walala. For those interested in textile a six-metre fabric printing tables will be running a repeat pattern created by design studio Kangan Arora which guests can then request to have sewn into various textile products including cushion covers by on site seamstresses. Visitors will have an opportunity to try screen printing for themselves and grab one of the products designed exclusively for the launch party. Our master of paper editioning Jo will also be live printing ‘Limitless’, the Kickstarter-exclusive screen print designed by a London-based type artist Lucinda Ireland.
Pop-up Gallery Store
In addition to live print sessions we will also have a pop-up gallery set up exhibiting artworks commissioned and printed through 3rd Rail’s publishing division 3rd Rail Presents. Guests will have a chance to grab one of the best selling 3rd Rail prints, including limited pieces by Alec Doherty and Hattie Stewart. What’s more, the gallery will also display screen printed Kickstarter prizes available to purchase if you missed our campaign.
Bar Area and Tickets
Of course, there will be a bar area, and for that we have to thank Fourpure for kindly sponsoring drinks for the evening. Please RSVP on our Facebook event page, tickets are available via Eventbrite if you want to grab some exclusive goodies. We hope to see you all next Thursday 25th January at 6pm at Peckham Levels, Unit 107.
