New workshops announced! Self-publishing short course, screen printing, letterpress, and more!

Thanks to the awesome CADS' equally awesome Space CADets programme, we've been given a free studio space until the end of June 2016. From our new home in the AVEC Building (which is opposite Yorkshire Artspace and The Rutland, and a stone's throw from the Showroom Cinema), we'll be running a super exciting programme of screen printing, writing, design, and self-publishing workshops, as well as offering open studio hours to folks who want a peaceful, welcoming space - that's stocked with a bountiful supply of stationery and general craft stuff! - to work on their own creative projects. Read on for details of our workshop programme...



AN INTRO TO SELF-PUBLISHING SHORT COURSE: FROM WRITING TO PRINT

  2. One of the demerits of the olden day's system of printing is that the results obtained from printing were variable. Even though you did your work well, you still could not be sure about the outcome. There might still be some mistakes in the outcome, which could negatively affect the prestige of the company.
