THIS THURSDAY IS OUR FIRST INFORMAL MEETING OF PRINT [WORKS] WESTON PRINT CLUB
A regular monthly meeting on the last Thursday of the month
We have organised a meet and greet evening at our workshop between 6 - 8pm on 28th April for those of you that are into print!
Come and meet us, have a cuppa, see our workshop and tell us what you would like from a Print Club. We would love your input. As a young, small business, we are keen to find out from our community what you want.
You may just want a couple of hours to work on a project whilst being able to talk to other creatives. You might want to discuss and share tips and tricks of printmaking processes or just learn a few. It may be that you would like to collaborate with others to have an exhibition or have a space to hire for workshops of your own.
Whatever the reason, we would love to see you on Thursday. If you can't make it, let us know your ideas by emailing us here or drop us a DM on Instagram or Facebook.
We are a very young business and believe that starting small will be the key to our success. While our space is snug, we believe it to be a creative, friendly, welcoming and inclusive space for all that visit us. We will always have the kettle on and biscuits to hand!
We aim to work within the community to bring Printmaking to the people!
Sustainability is important to us, so whilst we can't hope to be completely sustainable because of our creation of 'physical' products, we do try to make informed decisions about the products we use and the amount we use. We try to minimise paper waste and maximise it's use elsewhere. We recycle or reuse our papers where we can by keeping a paper 'stash' that we can use in future projects or workshops for collage and papermaking, to give a couple of examples.
In our intaglio processes, we are always looking at more environmentally friendly ways to produce our work and introduce these as they have been tried and tested by us. We use mainly vegetable oil to clean up oil based inks and keep the use of solvents to a bare minimum.
We are happy that a couple of our product suppliers have changed their packaging to plastic free and when sending products ourselves, we use plastic free packaging also and reuse where we can.
We can offer outreach workshops and are happy to discuss any ideas you may have for us to come to your organisation. Contact us here.
