I have one dream.... to have my own successful print studio. I love screen printing, (incase you haven't noticed) and would love nothing more.
I am now excited to say this dream is a possibility now I have an available space. I have been very lucky to have got my hands on this space in Bridlington.....
It needs a lot of work but I have been very lucky in one area... The warehouse (to be studio) was originally used for making parachutes. Therefore I was very excited to see it had an extremely large table. The table stretched the entire length of the room, and is in a fantastic condition.
Above, shows the table before. I chose to break down the table into a three tables which could be made into print tables. If you follow my facebook page you will have seen me transfer two of them into print tables.
Above: The Tables before..
Below: Is the tables after they have been covered.
I now have three tables, two of which are covered already. One measures 1.5m and the other 3m. The largest table which is yet to be covered measures just over 9m. I am very excited to print on them in the future. My next step in order to get printing is to have a wash booth so I can wash my screens and to build a bigger exposure unit.
I am also excited about another new addition to the studio.... a loom. I certainly aren't a weaver but my close friend Jade is. When she found a loom for sale locally I couldn't let her not buy it. So I thought where else would be a perfect space... and here it is! I'm sooo excited to see her use it. I've seen her work from university and it is amazing! We can teach each other! :)
