After being successfully funded through Kickstarter 3rd Rail Print Space has opened its doors for the first time on 25th January 2018. London’s biggest open access screen printing studio is now available to members and running screen printing workshops. Thank you to everyone who stopped by last week and for all those who didn’t manage to catch the event here are a few photos taken by the talented Sabela Peinado over the course of the launch night.
The 3rd Rail Print Space launch is just around the corner and we couldn’t thank Fourpure enough for sponsoring drinks for the event. Their progressive approach to brewing has led them to be named 2017 Brewery Business of the Year at the Society of Independent Brewers annual awards. We had a quick chat with the family owned and run business about the inspiration behind Fourpure can designs and their advice on running a new company.
Having successfully raised over £11,000 on Kickstarter we’re excited to announce that 3rd Rail Print Space, London’s biggest open access screen printing studio is finally launching on Thursday 25th January. We’ve been working around the clock in 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.
Cardiff based James L Lewis’ work has been featured in publications including Creative Review, The Guardian and Good Type. Pretty impressive considering the 21 year old only graduated last month – oh and he’s also managed to rack up over 75k followers on Instagram.
We’ve been working alongside the young lettering artist to create a limited edition screen print for social arts initiative Hopeful Traders. It will be one of the many rewards available from their Kickstarter campaign which launches this Friday so we had a chat with James about his journey and all things letter forms.
It’s been a while since we’ve had the pleasure working on an exciting collaboration so we’re really happy to announce our new partnership with social arts project Hopeful Traders. The organisation works really hard to remove the stigma around mental health and homelessness through working with artists affected by these issues on a clothing range. We had a chat with Charlie Wright who founded the initiative about how the project started, his commitment to producing ethical products and his upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
The London Illustration Fair came to a close this Sunday after hosting 69 exhibitors, dozens of workshops and showcasing the work of countless creatives. As well showing a selection of Artist Beer Visions screen prints we also used this as an opportunity to give the screen print series we released for Pick Me Up a bit more air time. It was also a great excuse to release a few more products which included festive tea towels and Christmas jumpers designed by Kristyna Baczynski, a new t-shirt and matching sticker sheet by Tony Riff and a fresh 5 colour screen print release from Hattie Stewart. All new products will be hitting the web store tomorrow (Wednesday 7th December). If you didn’t get a chance to make it down fear not! We’ve compiled this gallery of photos of the highlights across the 4 days.
