Artist Talk Series



Join us in the studio for an extra special Artist Talk with our current Artist in Resident, Fabio Lattanzi Antinori.

Tuesday 13th October

Fabio’s creations are not only visually mesmerising but they also reach out and captivate other human senses. His practice involves using conductive ink, which is a special paint that behaves like a liquid electric circuit conducting electricity through the viewers body when touched. When the audience touches the surface of his work, a sound, light or other electronic action can be activated.

This is a chance to see Print from a new perspective. An Artist Talk surely not to be missed.

The MAKER MILE is one square mile of open workshops, artist & design studios, fabricators, galleries, micro-factories, shops and businesses, centered on Mare St. between Bethnal Green and London Fields stations.

The MAKER MILE joins the dots on the ground for this diverse, existing network of suppliers, makers and outlets so that local communities can discover the maker culture and resources open to them.

On Monday 21st September, as part of the London Design Festival, the MAKER MILE will launch with the Open Mile event – a trail of workshops, open studios and activities throughout the evening.



Yes, join us on a Field Trip: a series of mini-tours taking you behind the scenes of London’s hidden design workshops, small factories and micro-manufacturing spaces. We roam far and wide, from a working victorian factory in Woolwich, to a high-tech sculpture fabrication studio in Acton, a heritage craftswoman’s workshop in Shacklewell Lane, to specialist textile screen printers in a Deptford railway arch.





Tickets are only £8 (hurrah!), including an hour-long tour, demonstrations and a talk by a leading founder or studio manager of the space.

Book your tickets on our bookings page or alternatively contact us – Helen or Eliza – for more details:

Look forward to seeing you there!

East London Printmakers at Embassy Tea Gallery



For the second year running East London Printmakers is pleased to present its Annual Show at Embassy Tea Gallery, 195 – 205 Union St, SE1 0PB.

The exhibition is open to all members and includes not just a range of styles, but experimental and accomplished work in most print mediums. Members are asked to contribute works made over the past year. It is a chance for fellow studio artists to see each other’s work in its finished state and for visitors to see the wide range of possibilities that printmaking allows. With a recently expanded studio and fantastic new equipment, the range of work this year is even more varied than previous shows.

Submitted works range from the imagined and intricate worlds of Jamie Temple and Belinda Chen, to the more fragmented and graphic cityscapes of Heather Fahy. Other works deal with more abstract forms, such as the colourful gestural drawings of Judith Symons or the linear works of Yann Brien. What these artists have in common is a passion for the possibilities afforded by print.

Pop-Up Exhibition with Kei Imai

east london printmakers kei imai project keyholder no blurb


We are pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Kei Imai.

Kei will be showing a suite of screenprints recently completed during her residency at our studio.
These works, though simple in form, demonstrate a complex experimentation with colour and texture. They are exciting in the ways that they fully exploit the potentialities offered by the screenprinting process. Based on architectural shapes of industrial areas, these prints are firmly grounded in the area in which they were produced. Their fragility and impermanence reflects the rapidly changing landscape of Hackney’s industrial past.

Join us on Thursday 20th August from 6pm – 9pm to support emerging creative talent.

For more information about the exhibition have a look here.

Artist Talk with Perrott Bespoke Printing


Next in our Artist Talk Series we’ll be welcoming Perrott Bespoke Printing to the studio.

On Tuesday 21st July, father and daughter team Stephen and Catherine Perrott will discuss the traditional printing techniques that their family have used for four generations.

Perrott have specialised in Print since 1926. They are based in Islington and have been in their current factory since 1971. Their experience and passion allows them to produce beautifully printed work and are celebrating four generations of Die Stamping. Die Stamping is a craft that they are extremely proud to offer due to its traditional process, distinctive finish and rarity within the printing world. As a family run business they value personal relationships and trust between clients. It allows them to produce work that not only reflects individuals but also creates a bespoke experience when working with them.

We are very excited to have them in the studio to discuss their work and the techniques that have been passed down through generations.
