Yesterday we decided to take time out of the studio and visit the beautiful village of Ditchling in East Sussex. Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft had organised to have a vintage steamroller print linocuts, woodcuts and letterpress prints. Some of our favourite artists, Anthony Burrill , Thomas Mayo and Rob Ryan were involved with this ambitious project known as Big Steam Print. The pictures below hopefully take you through some of the process. We even got involved inking up – a bit of a ‘busman’s holiday’. It was a great day out and should it happen again it would be well worth a visit. The sun even decided to come out. All in all a fantastic day.

A few weeks ago we were asked by Iain Worgan of Pleasetakenote to produce the poster below. It was run as a Limited Edition of 100 with the copy printed in opaque matt white and the glyphs in a gloss varnish. We used Curious Skin 270gsm from GF Smith papers for its tactile quality. The finished size of the poster was 490mm x 685mm. Iain is using it as a self promotional print exploring the hidden characters that designers use day in, day out but are seldom seen by anyone else. It can be purchased from his shop on his website.

We spent the day with our good friend Anthony Burrill screen printing a limited edition poster showing some of his Archive of Collected Ephemera & Printed Material. The poster will be launched at the end of May when Anthony will be giving a talk at Pentagram. Unusually for Anthony this poster was run in three colours, yellow, grey and black on Cyclus Offset paper. Another fun and relaxing day printing with Anthony.
We went along to the private viewing last night to see our prints on display alongside some beautiful work by so many of today’s leading contemporary graphic artists – Lakwena Maciver, Supermundane, Camille Walala, Anthony Burrill, Charlie Patterson, Morag Myerscough, David Shillinglaw, Hattie Stewart, Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk, Ana Montiel and Hilma Sassa.
It was a fantastic evening and extremely well attended with a lot of the prints being sold all raising money for the charity Refuge. The artworks will be auctioned at Christies on 10th March.
Printing a set of six A5 self-promotion postcards designed by our great friend Anthony Burrill.
These cards are the next stage in our marketing campaign, the previous ones being – a 14 page wiro bound book using different materials, a 10mm thick cork panel and a 10mm thick birch faced plywood all beautifully designed by Anthony.
The strategy behind these promotions is to show the versatility of screen printing and to produce work that is tactile and pleasing.
All are printed in a limited quantity and have become collectable items.
