The shop was home to a brand new pop-up concept. Part shop, part studio and part workshop space, this was an artist-run shop and a collaboration between Spike Print Studio & Drawn in Bristol.
Featuring the finest original print work made in the South-West, there was something for everyone to enjoy, from printed tote bags to high-end original print works of art. The Print Shop was also host to an educational program featuring a number of practical workshops, demos, talks and events.
Shoppers could also discover an in-store studio where artists created their own work and demonstrated the methods of production that go into the creating a variety of original print work.
The Print Shop invited an array of acclaimed international printmakers to partake in the space. Joining us throughout 2013, starting in August, was the acclaimed printmaker Yuji Hiratsuka, professor of fine art at the Oregon State University. In September we displayed a stunning 3D collaborative piece created by Irena Czapska and Tom Sowden (read about their work here). Cornish print-maker John Kilburn joined us in October and Peter Williams during November.
