I spotted a post from East London Printmakers on their instagram page about an exhibition of artists books from East London Printmakers members, launching ELP as the newest addition to the British Council’s Maker Library Network. The details aren’t up on their website yet, but I’m sure they will be soon, in the meantime check out their extensive links page for all things print.

Where: East London Printmakers, 19 Warburton road, E8 3RT
Yesterday saw the beginning of this year’s Into the Fold, organised by Camberwell Press. Into the Fold is a project which is comprised of a series of workshops, live events and lectures which play into an exhibition and a publication. I think upcoming the Wave your Flag workshop looks great.
In their own words “This year Into the Fold will bring together a diverse range of emerging and established creative practitioners and thinkers from the world of art and design. These practitioners have worked and developed projects in collaboration with Camberwell Press in the past. The first three weeks of the project will consist of a series of lectures, workshops and events—open to all—to generate material and formulate an exhibition. This series of activities will explore and question ideas around the terms re-work, re-visit and re-imagine. The participants will re-enact a previously performed event and re-contextualise it for this year’s Into the Fold. The results of this series of events will be exhibited in a setting specifically created by artists Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis for the upper floor of Camberwell Space Projects and become the content for a response in the form of a publication.”
