Event description
An Introduction to printmaking using thermal printers, label makers and other re-purposed retail/office/industry gear.

About this Event

We'll be looking at whether or not these mediums have the potential to subvert their original purpose/offer a more sustainable/cheaper option for making stickers/books/ephemera.

The workshop will consist of:

  • A short explanation of how the various bits of kit work, how to get hold of, install and use them. As well as what software to use and troubleshooting.
  • A practical section where people can experiment with the printers/bring along work that they want to print.

Participants are welcome to bring their own laptops to this event, but it's not essential.

We're operating a pay-what-you-can-payment model for this event. Please see the ticket section for more details and email us at fat.studio.cic@gmail.com if you want to talk to us about it :)

There is also the opportunity to add your creation to the F.A.T. Studio Shop if you'd like to. Please ask about this at the event.

Access Notes

1. Under 18's are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

2. Although AMP Gallery is on the ground floor and has a 810mm entrance, it unfortunately does not have a fully accessible bathroom. There is a disabled bathroom at Queen's Road Peckham station (7 minutes walk away from AMP Gallery) which we have an extra key for. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss other accessibility details.

3. If tickets are sold out online but you would still like to attend this event, get in touch at fat.studio.cic@gmail.com or 07896749760 and we'll add you to the wait list. We will also hold a few tickets for each event at AMP Gallery from when we open on the 7th November, so come in and pick one up if you're in the area.
