Starting this September we have the return of our “Print Your Own Tshirt” Saturday workshops . These sessions are a great way to spend a saturday afternoon over at Islington Mill.
We are also running our 6 week Introduction to Screen Printing course which starts on the 3rd September every Wednesday 6.30pm – 8.30pm at ZArts in Hulme. This course is the perfect way to learn the photosensitive process and it also demonstrates how easy it can be to create your own screen printing set up at home or in your studio.
Bookings are now being taken for all of the above sessions and vouchers are also available if you would like to buy a place as a gift.
For bookings, follow the links above and if you have an questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SFTOC crew some how acquired permissions to advertise their up-coming Salford based music festival on this otherwise dormant billboard, which is situated on Chapel Street, Salford. An extremely busy commute route for thousands of people everyday, and thus prime real estate for advertising a festival in the area.
The gallery below explains the process pretty well,
The billboard paper had the outline detail digitally printed via the A0 printer, these outlines were then filled and painted by hand.
Next a quick tester on the Mill’s front, seeing how well the wallpaper paste grips the heavy paper, with everyone happy we set about getting it up!
A day or two later, SFTOC crew came through again with some mobile scaff’ and the lads trollied it over the cobbles to the billboard.
With the tension and trepidation of a broad daylight guerrilla mission over head, the crew got on with the mammoth task of assembling the pieces atop a rickety tin structure whilst covered in what can only be likened to 90s Saturday morning TV junk.
A good 4 hours later, it’s up in all its shiny glory, inviting people to the wonders of Sounds from the Other City at the weekend.
