Cycle Revolution with the Design Museum

DM header

We are working alongside the Design Museum to provide a number of different cycle tours during the 6 month exhibition ‘cycle revolution’, which concluded in June 2016.  We have begun the first tours with  ‘cycle cultures'(as the exhibition opened its doors on 18th November).  This tour visits 6 bicycle stores and cafes, with a behind the scenes glimpse into their concept. Brompton Junction, B1866 and velorution have provided a fantastic briefing to the groups. We also visit Rapha, take a coffee and cake at Look Mum no Hands and visit Tokyo bikes before our last stop at Ai Weiwei ‘Forever’ cycle sculpture in the city. The tour covers several districts in London covering 18kms over a 3-4hour window.

All the riders have expressed what a great tour it is, allowing them to see so manu independent and varied cycle concessions in a short time. Our next cycle cultures tour is Sunday January 24th. Then we return in March to launch a new tour ‘design perspectives’, which takes riders along both sides of the Thames.along both sides of the Thames.

Tall Ship Festival 2015

During the Tall Ship festival we took part in the woolwich arsenal event on Saturday 29th August (along with canons, enactments, vintage cars etc). With our printing hive unit and pre designed postcards we set about liv sprinting demos for the public. Always popular with kids and crafty folk several participants took part printing a skull or ship in the bottle designs. The rain unfortunately brought the day/evening to a close. With the Tall Ship masts in the background, shanty music and drums we werecertainly in the zone.

NYU educationists get into process

Masters Students from NYU joined us for a one off days workshop. The day was divided into 4 parts exploring a range of drawing, mark making, printing and binding along the rivers edge and Surrey Docks farm. The 16 students explored the range of techniques and process from mono printing & automatic drawing to cyantype  printing from finds along the foreshore to screen printing. The artefacts where then bound into small scale booklets before the day concluded and they moved onto other experiences during their 3 weeks summer school in the UK.

On the road—Charity Print ‘Kick Ebola Out’

We were asked to get involved in a fundraising event at Dulwich Wood School in south east London In June 2015. One of their pupils designed the mark at the mere age of 11 years old for Ebola awareness. We printed 120 T-shirts before the school assembly and printed another 25 live with the help of some of the children.
