Live Screen Printing
'Live Printing’ gives anyone, no matter their age or skill level, the opportunity to try screen printing. The result is a totally unique garment or accessory which they can treasure, knowing that they created it themselves!
Because this approach to printing does not produce any waste it is also sustainable and we use water-based inks - result!
GLASGOW FILM FESTIVAL
We recently collaborated with the Glasgow Film Festival to bring guests to a selection of the Special Events screenings the opportunity to print their own unique t-shirt or bag as a souvenir of their evening. Screenings included cult movies such as The Matrix, Fight Club and Alien and were shown on location at The Argyle Street Arches, Parkhouse Business Park and other locations around the city. The artwork was inspired by each movie and was created by the designer working with the festival team. To see more images from the festival courtesy of photographer Ingrid Mur click here.
We run regular ‘taster’ sessions at Super Market, Glasgow’s most unique market, which will be running monthly in locations across Glasgow throughout the year. During 2018 it was housed in the Argyle Street Arches in the city centre.
Participants are taken through a series of fun drawing exercises before being given time to develop their own design which we help them to convert into a paper stencil. Finally they print it onto a tote bag or another textile of their choice.
INDIAN FOOD BAZAAR
Our first live printing event was at the Indian Food Bazaar in July 2018, which was held over one weekend at The Briggait. Stalls representing the six main culinary regions of India served a total of 36 different delicious dishes of food!
We exposed screens with artwork inspired by the building and customers had the opportunity to print their own tote bag as a memento of their visit.
How to book
If your organisation is interested in booking us for an event - you provide the artwork prior to the event, we prepare the screens and mix the inks. It’s as simple as that!
We need access to running water and power and then you can leave the rest to us to work our magic…
We can cater for music events, festivals, markets, team building activities and much more so if you are interested, please get in touch and we can arrange to have a chat. Pop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
