Silkscreen at L.C.C. Art Activities Week

Silkscreen printing at the London College of Communication
11 pupils (6 Year10 and 5 Year7) and 2 staff (Mr B-A and Ms Barrett) had the fantastic opportunity to design and print T-shirts at LCC in Elephant and Castle, part of the University of the Arts, kindly organised by one of the WLFS parents Jackson Jessop. We started off on the Monday by using the Mac computer suite to design variations of the school logo. We wanted to subvert in a Banksy style the face of Cicero by referencing famous artists such as Lichenstein and Warhol.
Dan the friendly and helpful assistant and graduate from LCC showed us how to prepare a screen to get it ready for printing. On the second day we then had a demonstration and then started the epic task of custom printing 70 T-shirts. It was an intense process but the pupils created amazing results. It was a really unique activity and we are grateful to Mr Jessop and his team at LCC for providing such an engaging workshop. The T-shirts were sold at the PTA Summer fair with proceeds going back into the school. Well done to all the pupils involved.
