London’s Biggest Open Access Screen Printing Studio is Launching!

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.

Live Screen Printing Sessions

Kangan Arora and Camille Walala's tote bag design

Thursday 25th January will be the first opportunity for guests to experience 3rd Rail Print Space 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 textiles the six-metre fabric printing tables will be running a repeat pattern created by design studio Kangan Arora. Guests can then request to have this sewn into various textile products including cushion covers by on site seamstresses. 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 the space 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.

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.
