The Shipping Press

The Shipping Press is a unique studio converted from a shipping container, which is positioned looking out across the River Thames in South East London. The marine environment is the theme which the artists explore through letterpress, printmaking and book arts. The studio is equipped with low–fi materials, small scale machinery and tools which include a 8x5 Adana Press, an etching press, metal clamps and a board  for screen printing, finishing presses and a nipping press.  The limitation of space and equipment has enabled creative limitations. The group's interest in art, design and architecture is just the start of a process of experiments and research connected to a curiosity inspired by their surroundings.
