Richard Wright

Proofing has begun on Richard Wright's lithograph for the porfolio that we are co-publishing with Locus+

Modern Empire - Russell Maurice

Prior to the workshop move we had been contacted by Modern Empire to work on a project with London based Russell Maurice. Initially it was thought that meeting the exhibition deadline would not be possible, but the swift install into the new premises and speedy postal services help make it happen.

Two rounds of proofing were required to produce these four pieces, with subtle changes in the colour to create the right balance between the image and the silver powder embellishments.

Hole Editions has moved!!

Over the past few weeks we have been moving the workshop to new premises at 36 Lime Street, after a productive six years at the Mushroom Works location. The end of April was taken up with packing up the workshop and dismantling the workbenches & graining sink. Keys were received from Open Clasp before the Bank Holiday weekend and the move commenced on the last day of April.

The move was only possible with the kind support, help & strength of Peter J. Evans, Nigel Easter, Gallagher & Turner, Richard Rigg, Narbi Price, Ant Macari, Sean Mallen & Nazim Kourgli.

Open Clasp kindly donated lots of furniture and extras which have helped enormously. There is still some tinkering to be done over the coming months, but we are delighted to have the workshop functional and the press in action in such a short space of time.

The 1100+ visitors to 36 Lime Street during the Late Shows were able to visit the new workshop and see it in action, some were lucky enough to be able to print their own lithos.
