Designer and printmaker Thomas Mayo drops in to give a talk on his creative work and practice.
The evening includes a demonstration – including his recent 'The Massive Finger' – using the world record-holding People Powered Press.
And join Thomas again the following day:
Friday 25 March, 3.00pm - 5.00pm
Pay As You Feel – no need to book
Join Thomas for an afternoon printing on the People Powered Press. We'll have the ink out and the kettle on; just turn up when you like, stay as long as you like, and make some very big prints.
Thomas Mayo is a letterpress printmaker based in the Cotswolds. He creates a wide range of bespoke typographic prints. He also crafts his own printing blocks from wood, using a variety of newfangled techniques which are used within his work and collaborations with other designers.
He recently collaborated with designer and printmaker Anthony Burrill, and Split's Oli Bentley, to create the modular type system Brico for the People Powered Press.
He has worked with clients such as Jameson Whiskey, Marks & Spencer and Transport for London, with his most recent work permanently installed at London’s Farringdon underground station. Thomas has an MA from the University of Gloucestershire in Visual Communication and is a Brother of The Art Workers Guild.
All proceeds from this event will be used to support the People Powered Press' work with community groups around the Bradford district, amplifying local voices and spreading words worth spreading.
