Artist Talk with Perrott Bespoke Printing

Next in our Artist Talk Series we’ll be welcoming Perrott Bespoke Printing to the studio.

On Tuesday 21st July, father and daughter team Stephen and Catherine Perrott will discuss the traditional printing techniques that their family have used for four generations.

Perrott have specialised in Print since 1926. They are based in Islington and have been in their current factory since 1971. Their experience and passion allows them to produce beautifully printed work and are celebrating four generations of Die Stamping. Die Stamping is a craft that they are extremely proud to offer due to its traditional process, distinctive finish and rarity within the printing world. As a family run business they value personal relationships and trust between clients. It allows them to produce work that not only reflects individuals but also creates a bespoke experience when working with them.

We are very excited to have them in the studio to discuss their work and the techniques that have been passed down through generations.

On 26th May, East London Printmakers will be hosting a talk by the fantastic Heretic Studio.

Heretic is an experimental screen printing studio comprising of Luke Frost, Jon Rundall and Therese Vandling. Their wide ranging activities have most recently taken the form of an ongoing and evolving body of work called
Spectral Nation: an exploration of screen printing as a medium and process, looking at colour interactions and the journey an image makes, from digital manipulation into analogue, and the transformations and distortions this journey can bring about, uncovering hidden complexities within simple compositions.

Pop-Up Exhibition with Laurie Storey

East-London-Printmakers-PK-LaurieStorey-Show-15-sq

We’re excited to announce, on Thursday 7th May, East London Printmakers will be hosting a pop-up exhibition of work by Laurie Storey.

 

If Ed Miliband eats a sandwich in the forest and no one is around to see it, does he still get lime pickle on his eyelid?

A one day exhibition investigating the relationship between British politics, the media and the cult of celebrity, which will take place on election day. This body of work constitutes the findings whilst participating in the Project Keyholder Residency at East London Printmakers in Spring 2015. Realised via traditional printmaking methods, this selection of work explores the appropriation and distortion of information via a variety of media outlets, focusing on the junction where considered documentation and fact is sacrificed for entertainment and titillation.

Laurie is an artist, printmaker living and working in London. He has spent the last two months completing a Project Keyholder Residency at ELP. Alongside producing his own work, Laurie runs Vulpes Vulpes; a project space in Bermondsey which hosts exhibitions, performances and workshops. You can read more about Laurie’s work and his time at ELP here.

Join us on Thursday 7th May from 6pm – 10pm to support emerging creative talent.
