The New Incunable Print Shop now open at LCB Depot

We've just opened a new participatory exhibition at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot, in collaboration with Phoenix and artist collective Juneau Projects.

At The New Incunable Print Shop you can 3D-print woodblocks based on your own drawings and use them to create original prints and artworks.

The New Incunable Print Shop will also design unique posters and flyers, free of charge. The designs will be supplied as digital files ready for printing, and will also form part of the exhibition. Find out more and place an order at newincunable.co.uk.

I spent a very enjoyable session creating my own woodblock, from the initial drawings through to actual 3D-printing of the block, then using it to design a hand printed card. The process is fascinating, and opens up a wealth of creative opportunities.

To have a go yourself, visit the exhibition at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot, Rutland Street, Leicester LE1 1RE. It runs until 29 November and is open from 12-5.30pm Tuesdays - Saturdays, and also from 3.30-9.30pm on Sunday 16 November to coincide with the city's Light the Night festival. FREE.
