Workshop: Printshop! 2016

In summer 2016, My Bookcase was thrilled to be part of Printshop! exhibition and functioning studio. There, we hosted the last in a series of exciting, free, weekend workshops at Tramway focused on screen printing, letterpress and bookbinding, all devised and led by a host of different artists, makers and designers. The day turned into an exploration of how the material produced during past workshops can be turned into useful paper objects through simple bookbinding methods.

Printshop is an exhibition of collaborative work by Edwin Pickstone and Giles Round, and a functioning studio for visitors to participate in artist-led print. The large scale work produced within the Caseroom of The Glasgow School of Art provides a setting for introductory workshops to screenprinting, bookbinding and letterpress. Through the act of printing and reprinting, the gallery becomes a site for the production of print.
