Fancy a go at screenprinting this weekend? Aaron Skipper and Amber Smith, the duo that organised January’s inaugural Leeds Print Festival, are hosting a Pop Up Print event at Leeds’ Mexico exhibition space tomorrow and Sunday…

Pop Up Print will open its doors between 10am and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday and entry is free to all. However, purchasing a £5 print ticket on the day will allow you to get involved and actually produce an edition of screenprints to take away at the end of the session and go home with limited edition Pop Up Print keepsakes.

There will also be a small exhibition of prints  with the Leeds Print Festival charity prints produced by Music, The Beautiful Meme, Anthony Burrill and Generation Press available to buy.

Plus, on Saturday bookbinder Alex Pritchard will be demonstrating his craft and on Sunday Bradford-based The Print Project will be demonstrating how to set type and print using their Adana press.

Pop Up Print is running this weekend, Saturday June 23 – Sunday June 24 at
