At East Side Print we were definitely hoping for a sunnier start to 2021. But we are using this third lockdown as an opportunity to re-organise the workshop in readiness for when we can finally open.
We’re building a darkroom area where we can coat and dry photo-stencil screens, and moving the position of some of our screen beds, which is no small task as some of them are hefty beasts! But the hope is this will make the workshop function more smoothly.
Space is at a premium in the workshop and a major reason for reorganising is to create more storage space for screens and materials. The workshop has very high ceilings, so we’re building up, using the space above the new darkroom as a spare screen rack.
