A BIT ABOUT PRINT CLUB
Print Club London was established in 2007 and is run by managing director Fred Higginson (Sculptor/ Illustrator M.O.L.) and director Kate Higginson. The duo work closely with iconic illustrator and creative director Rose Stallard, who brings the Print Club brand to life with her inimitable 1970s fanzine-style-artwork and edgy typography.
Alongside running the studios Fred, Kate and Rose also curate an annual exhibition ‘Blisters’ one of the UK’s largest poster shows, it introduces a wider demographic to affordable, original artwork, bringing a contemporary art scene to a brand new audience. Whilst providing studio space and selling work is a key focus of the studios, the trio work with clients on projects ranging from bespoke bags for Stella McCartney to live printing projects in store with Nike.
CLIENTS inc: Channel4, Sony, Universal Music, Selfridges, Disney, Stella McCartney, Levi’s, Tate Modern, Starwood Hotels, Jestico & Whiles, Havanna Rum, Red Stripe and Puma.
WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
Open 24 hours a day 365 days a year. We have six screen beds, two t-shirt carousels, t-shirt dryer, Apple Macs, storage facilities, a washout room and the mother of all exposure units. We supply the facilities and members supply their consumables such as ink, paper, screens and emulsion. Emulsion can be bought at the studio at £30 per Kilo. We ask that if you have not screenprinted in the last 6months that you complete one of our workshops before joining the studio. These are bookable from the workshop page.
HOW IT WORKS
Membership is from the 1st of each month. You must be confident with the entire process of screen printing and with the responsibilities of being a studio member. You must complete at least 3 days while a technician is in the studio (weekdays only). These can be booked through our studio manager once you’ve paid.
You can pre-book 3 screen printing sessions a week.
A session is made up of 3 hours of booked time on a screen bed or the T – Shirt carousel. Any coating, cleaning of screens and art working can be done outside of your (3x) three hour session. However if you have used up your weekly sessions, any un-booked sessions that aren’t being used by other members can be used at no extra cost.
We have a studio technician from 10am – 5 pm , every day of the week.
Session Times 9-12am / 12-3pm / 3-5pm / 5-9pm / 9-12pm
The nightshift will not be connected to allocated time; we will admire your dedication, and be slightly nervous of your vampire qualities.
