Last weekend I visited Hello Print Studio in Margate.
It's run by Nick Morley and Emrys Plant. Nick, who is also sometimes known as linocutboy, showed me around the space... (He doesn't usually have a lamp attached to his head).
Hello Print Studio is part of Resort Studios, a space for creative people to work and share their work with the public through workshops, talks and exhibitions. Resort Studios was founded in 2013 with a vision of encouraging "experimentation and collaboration in an inspiring and professional environment" (http://www.resortstudios.co.uk/about/who-we-are/).
The print studio is a light, high-ceiling'd space with equipment for screenprinting, etching and relief printing.
When I visited they were getting ready to run a Gocco printing workshop.
I liked the small individual studios within the print studio, made of a collage of wood, glass and pieces of stained-glass windows and doors. Wouldn't it be inspiring to work in one of these?
It was impressive to see the hard work and vision that has gone into starting such a venture. The people and the space bring an exciting creative energy to Margate.
