Poul Webb London Exhibition

We have personally known Poul Webb for many many years and have always been astounded by his use of colour and composition. Back in the day Poul worked at The Factory alongside Warhol. In the past we have  screenprinted several Limited Edition prints with Poul. These are some detail photos from his recent solo exhibition at Catto Gallery in London.

Make Bank Editioned screen print

The Make Bank is a social project founded by our good friends Tom Pigeon. Tom Pigeon have recognised that some art students can’t afford the materials that they need to complete a course and therefore never progress through the creative industries. The aim of Make Bank is to raise the money to fund various art kits that students from the age of thirteen can apply for.

Its a Limited Edition of 100 and printed in six colours on Matrisse 300gsm and its available to buy from the Make Bank shop.  If you buy one you are donating to a very worthwhile cause.

Screen printing workshop with A Level students

This post speaks for itself:

On Friday 15th March Mr Davies took four sixth form students, Archie, Jack, Sam and Oliver, to Harvey Lloyd Screen Print in Wadhurst, East Sussex. The students had spent almost six months developing their ideas as part of their A Level Graphic Design coursework and preparing their artwork for print.

Harvey Lloyd Screen Print is a print workshop in East Sussex who work with graphic designers, illustrators and artists including Anthony Burrill, Mr Bingo, Morag Myerscough and Tom Pigeon. They are well known for their open and experimental nature and are always keen to push the process to achieve unique results.

Steve and Tracey who run the workshop invited our students along following a conversation with Mr Davies almost a year ago while he was there working on his own artwork having been introduced to them by Anthony Burrill a year earlier. Both Steve and Tracey are keen to support and inspire the next generation of artists and designers and to introduce them to the world of print based design. During the day they demonstrated each stage of the process while allowing each student the freedom to experiment with a wide range of different techniques.

As well as Steve and Tracey sharing their expertise, renowned graphic artist and print-maker Anthony Burrill came along to offer his support and inspiration to the day’s proceedings. Anthony is best known for his ‘Work Hard & Be Nice To People’ poster which adorns the walls of homes the world over. He has had exhibitions at Tate Modern, The V&A, The Design Museum and the Barbican.

With this amount of experience and creative energy in the small workshop the lucky students concerned churned out one amazing print after another, each ending the day with approximately 40 prints with no two prints looking the same.

The day was a huge success and the work produced will go towards the student’s coursework portfolio later this year and be exhibited with the rest of their work in the summer exhibition at Homewood.

A huge thank you to Steve and Tracey at Harvey Lloyd’s for their time, their patience and sharing their expertise and also to Anthony Burrill for coming along and adding an extra layer of inspiration to the day’s proceedings which I am sure the lucky students will never forget!

Mr M. Davies Head of Graphics at Homewood School and 6th form centre.

Jungle Fever

We really enjoyed pushing the boundaries on this print for Such Stories. The separations were all created without using a digital tone and the inks (7) were mixed so that when colours overprinted each other then additional colours were made. We also had to make elements of the image glow in the dark.
