101.2 Thing To Do No. 61 - Join a Club
Luckily, in October 2010 Stew Studios opened it's doors to (Nor)folk like me, and I was back in business. After a couple of months of printing this and that with no real direction, Jo Stafford and Vicki Johnson, the founders of the studios ask me if I wanted to join them and two other guys, Tim Wall and Daryl Williams in a kind of screen printing club, where we meet up and create a new brief every month and print them (the first brief was to create a band poster).
Jo and Vicki have made great connections in the area through there screen printing and through Stew Studios, so even before we'd put ink to squeegee the exhibitions started racking up. The first exhibtation came from Luke at the Rumsey Wells, who had a space in the exhibition diary for the month of March, and the Mesh Collective, as we have called ourselves, were slotted in at very short notice.
So with just two weeks to print three pieces of work each, last night we completed 101.1 Thing To Do No. 12 – Get a piece of work into an exhibition. (post to follow).
