You’ll be able to take part in live paper printing, paper cut screen printing, screen print you’re own Gal-dem t-shirt and make a cyanotype. We will be hosting workshops with artists Hello Ditto and Alex Poyner.
Emma Cooke, Hello Ditto
Emma started screen printing after completing one of our Intermediate Paper Printing courses. Inspired by the process she set up design brand Hello Ditto, a print project bringing new life and love into discarded found imagery. An exploration into the juxtaposition of type, colour and pattern with culture, travel, history, word and image using screen printing as the medium for the message. Hello Ditto repurposes postcards, books, photographs, maps, magazines and more – giving them a second chance to say hello. Emma will be live printing vintage postcards throughout Friday evening.
Gal-dem is a magazine (online and in print) and creative collective comprised of over 70 women and non-binary people of colour which launched in September 2015. Gal-dem provides a space for women of colour to not only discuss the issues they face as a result of their race or cultural differences but also the art they create, their political views and showcase their broad spectrum of talents and interests. On Saturday you’ll have the chance to print your own limited edition Gal-dem t-shirt designed by Gal-dem art director, Leyla Reynolds.
