project theme

Bree is a spirited and standout font that takes its inspiration from handwriting. It's sure to grab your reader's attention, especially in short paragraphs.

what's the

big idea?

The project theme FOR 2022 is 'Food Growing and Gardening' as this fits the two charities that the project will be supporting and fundraising for - food banks (Trussell Trust) and community kitchens and creative learning (Edible Rotherhithe).

By April 2022, all 50 printmakers will have designed and printed their interpretation of this theme, either by drawing on their own gardening experiences or looking at the wider meaning of the theme.

Please search the hashtag #thoughtpressproject to find out what our printmakers have been up to and see process sketches, designs, carving and in some cases finished prints, some of which are already available to buy in the shop part of this website!

So go on, have a look, buy a print and help raise some money today for Trussell Trust and Edible Rotherhithe!

About Us

BRINGING PRINTMAKERS TOGETHER

This project is as much about building friendships, connections and artistic influences and feeling like part of a bigger movement in creativity and kindness, as much as it is about raising money for Mind and Heart Felt Tips. 

 

Here are some of the lovely comments from the printmakers involved:

Sharon Hiley @sonabeam said of her partnership with Allie Clubb @print.clubb  "Thank you, it's nice to have arty contact in isolating times!"

 

Hannah Bigley @hannahelisabethbigley said of her new printmaking pal Rachel Lloyd @rachlloydpress, "I'm so glad to be a part of ... something so big, and for such a good cause...it's been so nice chatting to Rach... that's such a good idea to match people up."
