10PM Print club
The trio decided to open up the shop to work with Derby artists and creatives who would also love a space to hosts workshops, exhibit and sell their work as well as meet people from different areas of Derby's creative landscape and discover what it means to others to be an artist in the city.
They hope to find new ways to collaborate with other creatives.
Sian, Ste and Niall will also be holding workshops in screen printing and the print process.
10PM Print Club have been offered the opportunity to have their own space at St James Street to use how they wish by Hypha Studios.
Hypha Studios is a charity that matches creatives with empty spaces to regenerate the high street through the formation of cultural hubs with programming to engage local communities.
By providing free studios and project rooms we act as an incubator for artistic talent to conceive of new ideas by removing financial obstacles to creativity, and crucially, we provide opportunities to those that could not previously access this level of support or visibility.
We envision a world where anyone can access culture on their doorstep. Every placement includes a mentoring session for the selected artist and the creation of a public program that directly engages with local communities, generating new footfall- which in turn will benefit existing local businesses.
If the future of our increasingly barren high streets must be leisure led, Hypha Studios aims to reimagine the once consumer driven experience to one that instead prioritises public engagement - producing cultural high streets of the future.
If you want more information about events and workshops that 10PM Print Club are delivering then you'll find us at 6 St James Street, pop in for a chat!"
They are available for design work, printing and advice on anything visual and creative.
