Pearlfest 2016

The other week, the glamorous reception area at Pearlfisher was turned into a pop up silkscreen print studio.
Gary Parselle from The Private Press set up his temporary silkscreen print workshop, so the whole creative team got their hands dirty experiencing hand silk screen-printing for themselves.
Just using a few colours, plus a few different screens and our lovely Colorset 100% recycled paper.
...and hey presto, lots of different results
...we were asked to supply a selection of different colours from our Colorset range in 270gsm. For those of you not familiar with this collection, Colorset has 26 colours and is made from 100% Recycled fibres. All colours are available in 120, 270 and 350gsm. Amongst other uses, it's become a firm favourite with Silkscreen printers.The colours you see here are Deep Orange, Mango, Lemon, Lime, Aquamarine, Magenta, Pink Ice, Ash, Solar, Nero, White and Natural.
The workshop was run by Gary Parselle from The Private Press who's studio is based in Brighton. The event was arranged by Jenny Cairns and Managing Director Darren Foley.
Small scale events like this are such a great idea. It exposes a whole team to a shared creative experience and with a "pop up" like this, no need to travel!
