How did you come to be at 3rd Rail Print Space?
I graduated in 2010 in Leeds and then moved down to London. I worked in design studios, within high street brands like Topshop and that led me to work freelance and assist designers. Then I came upon the open access screen print world and I've been doing this for eight years.
What’s an average day for you?
I run the day to day. Ian and Rob (they went to University together) are the studio directors. They established 3rd Rail Print Space from our sister company, 3rd Rail Clothing, which has been running for about 10 years.
When Peckham Levels approached us to open a screen print studio it felt like it was organically the next step for the 3rd Rail hub. To showcase and share all the skills from 3rd Rail Clothing into a comprehensive print hub comprised of t-shirt printers with their own unique brands, hobbyists, fabric printers and paper printers. So, we have big brands, but we also have a lot of individuals.
We have a workshop programme that enables anyone to come in and learn the process. It gives an insight on the process and if you enjoy it you can become a member.
