10pm Print Club
The 10pm Print Club (consists of three best buds: Sian, Niall & Ste) a Derby based DIY screen print studio. Specialising in bespoke short print runs and design services, offering accessible merch printing for fellow creatives. They’re part of wider fundraising collectives Year Of Glad (events/music/art/writing/food) and ShadyCow (LGBTQIA+ performance showcase) They have all studied and work as illustrators/designers, producing branding for local businesses/murals/sign writing/event tech/installations/workshops.
Between them, they explore everything from digital illustration (2D/3D), animation, projection, AR. Screen printing brings them back to the tactile, tangible side of producing work! Their DIY home screen printing setup constantly develops as they learn. With the equipment and stock they are accumulating, they invite local artists to design work for print at no cost to them and pay them back the profits.
They will use the space to PRINT & PLAY: transforming the space into a screen print workshop (carousel, print boards & heat curer) so they can print on site (practical and added visual element for the public to view process) Set up pop-up shop: over duration of the occupancy they’ll fill the space up with posters, t-shirts, bags and other merchandise that may emerge. 10pm Print Club will host workshops and invite local creatives down to print their own illustrations which can be added to the growing exhibit and shop. They will open to public intermittently, but ultimately build up to a big exhibition/shop launch with music+food fundraising event.
Facilitate screen printing plus zine/poster workshops: liaise and incorporate other local creative groups. They will have an exhibition launch to feature music performances: Year of Glad fundraising gig/all-dayer with street food pop-up from local trader. They will also have a projection map inside space for public viewing (doubling as backdrop for live performance)
