We know how to do festivals.. bring the pasta machines, roll up the ink and get foraging leaves! We had a great time at End of the Road Festival. This was our second time at the festival and we were lucky to have the best print drying weather (warm and not windy!). We welcomed over 200 participants who joined us in printing fun to entertain and fulfil their creative minds whilst in between watching excellent bands!
Get yourselves down to North Street for our pop up exhibition, only open for one weekend! We are celebrating Gry's residency in Bristol and showcasing our works from our degree show. You can take part in our collaborative map making workshop too so drop in from Thiurs 16th - Sun 19th. Hope to see you there!
We were delighted to be asked to return to Tolpuddle Festival and run a printing workshop. This year we wanted to make something special so we designed a banner for Unison to celebrate their 25 years anniversary. The banner was created from individual lino cut stamps and styrofoam prints created on the day of the festival. The next day the banner was paraded down Tolpuddle with the other official banners!
Thank you to everyone who visited us at BV Open Studios! We had a great time meeting everyone and sharing our space with the public and fellow BV artist studio members.
We are absolutely delighted to say that we have been featured in Issue 3 of Pressing Matters magazine, a magazine dedicated to the art and craft of printmaking. In our article we chat about our Danish residency at Funen Printmaking Studio, day to day life working together as a collective, and each of our own personal practices.
To celebrate, we will be hosting an afternoon of free drop-in workshops at Cass Arts in Bristol!
Join us in screen printing your own tote bag for your copy of Pressing Matters, which will be available to buy throughout the afternoon. Use a classic Adana Press to print your own book mark, and use lino stamps to create your own personal design.
Find us at Cass Arts (43 - 45 Park Street, Bristol, BS1 5NL) Sat 17th March, 2 - 5 pm!
