Coming Up at ELP


Have a look at what we have in store at East London Printmakers this Spring!


There’s lots to get involved with at ELP this Spring. We have our Members Box Set Edition on display at Xylonite Arts until March 22nd. We will also be taking our members work to the Independent Label Market in late March.

Continuing our 2015 Artist Talk Series, Oscar Eaton our Artist in Resident last year will be giving a talk about his recent projects and his work at ELP on 24th March. We’ll also have the pleasure of talking to Heretic Printmakers about their print practice in May.

We have a fantastic selection of courses coming up this Spring including a brand new Etched Lino course with Steve Edwards and a Pop Up Paper Architecture Course with our newest Artist in Resident Hilary Powell.

You can also keep up to date with all our events through our Twitter, Facebook, and on our Blog.

Hilary Powell


Hilary Powell makes work that moves across media and demolition sites and in and out of scrap yards and academia. The culmination of her recent AHRC Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts with the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL was a public production line of a pop-up book A-Z employing apprentices to create a theatre of making that resulted in a ltd edition book now collected by V&A, Poetry Library and MoMA Library and represented by Kaleid Editions.  Alongside the residency at ELP she is currently Leverhulme Artist in Residence in UCL Chemistry experimenting with urban alchemy putting reclaimed industrial materials to use by reimagining traditional print techniques and plotting another theatrical space of making and materials.
