Pick Me Up: Print Club and HigginsonHurst

We’ve been filming down at Pick Me Up – the graphic art show at Somerset House in London. First up, how to make a screenprint, plus interviews with James Hurst of HigginsonHurst and James Jarvis

Some of the exhibitors at Pick Me Up – the graphic art fair which opened last week and is currently running at Somerset House until May 3 – kindly took the time to tell us (and our lo-fi “film making equipment”) about their involvement in the show. Over the next day or two we’ll show you the films we made – first up is a look at Print Club London’s room in the exhibition which they are sharing with new illustration agency HigginsonHurst…

James Hurst of HigginsonHurst talked to us about the new illustration agency’s presence at Pick Me Up:

James also, very kindly, took the time to explain the part of the screenprinting process that visitors to the Print Club London / HigginsonHurst room at Pick Me Up don’t get to see: getting the screens print-ready:

Also, while we were hanging about in this particular room at Pick Me Up, we bumped into James Jarvis who had just finished screenprinting an edition of 50 new prints. So we stuck our camera in his face too (thank you James):
