Based in West London, The London Print Studio are an artist-run, not-for-profit organisation that provides educational resources in the graphic arts for artists, community organisations, education institutions and the public. I had the chance to visit it the other day and I found some nice visuals and crafted books. It is worth a visit http://www.londonprintstudio.org.uk/
After a break last year for the Olympics, the Hackney WickED Festival is back in its sixth year, designed to celebrate the area’s many creatives. Hackney Wick has the highest density of artists in the world, from weekend amateurs to Bridget Riley. With more than 350 participating artists, Hackney WickED is a good place to see nice creative stuff and taste some bits of good food. There are open studios and bigger exhibitions in the area’s galleries. The right place to have a wick-end!
Last week I went to visit Type Tasting Studios. They are in Dalston and it was a “open gallery” day. Type Tasting workshops are tailored sessions in which participants experiment with type and explore its expressive qualities.
At this time hey were introducing the new Typography Emporium. Here you can see the online shop with all the different “type” christmas cards, etc designed by Sarah Hyndman of With Relish…
