hyper screenprinting

This thursday and next I’ll be running a screenprinting workshop at the Hyper Festival I’ve done it over a couple of years and it’s always a bucket of laughs. The workshops are held in the a large shopping centre mainly for teenagers. Shopping centres have become, especially for younger generations, the new town centre. One of the biggest problems with these spaces however, is that there are no non-consumer activities for people to partake in. There’s a great dynamic where these huge commercial spaces are used (at least, in part) for a cultural activity that’s free, engaging and creative.
