Royal Society Lates Workshop

Another December Workshop, this time at the Royal Society, the grandest building we have ever screen printed in. The images we printed where from a  book of Micrographia by Ernst Haeckel. One image that looked like flowers was in fact a microscopic image of blue cheese created over 400 years ago! 




December was a busy month! 
We ran a great workshop with Look Up Prints, a platform promoting artist and designers working in the world of geometry, line, pattern and colour. I sell prints through their online shop, check them out! 
The workshop was held at Central Parade in Walthamstow is a perfect open and bright space. 15 participants got to have a go at producing multi-layered, multi-coloured screen prints. The outcomes where beautiful, experimental and full of colour.
Look out for new workshops on mine, and Look Ups Instagram feed! 


Science Museum Gaming Lates


At this months @smlates the theme was gaming, a fun brief for us to work with.
We designed two kitch gaming posters influenced by Super Mario and retro gaming arcades. It was a really busy evening full of colour and budding screen printers. 

Molton Brown + Harrods Box Printing

Its always exciting when Molton Brown get in touch with a project and this time didn't disappoint.
1000 boxes printed over two days in a factory at Stanstead Airport is quite an ask but we managed it. The beautiful illustration created by Willa Gebbi was printed onto the boxes and sold exclusively at Harrods.
