Bristol Set in Print

Celebrating the heritage of industrial Print in Bristol, Bristol Set in Print explores how it has shaped our city and acknowledging all those involved.
 
The project aims to document this industry; connecting with forgotten craftsmen to map historical forms of printing alongside its current practitioners who are pushing new boundaries.
 
What was once the forefront of a fast-paced and dynamic technology now exists as museum relics, the remains of rusting machines, crumbling stones, and scattered lead-type.
 
The project will unleash these from storage onto a contemporary scene. Through a series of demonstrations, skill-share workshops, and public events it will pass on the trade of our heritage and promote further education in this important area of history. Combining the traditional with the present, the industrial with the artistic, the old and young; Bristol Set in Print will strive to create something very new.
 
Proving in its practice that print is not dead.
