Artist in Residence - The Walled Nursery, Hawkhurst, Kent. March 15, 2018 16:17

For the next six months, starting on 27th February to 9th September 2018, we are very excited about being the artist in residence at The Walled Nursery near Hawkhurst. We have worked with Emma and Monty at the nursery for six years, designing cards, prints, tea towels and mugs for them. So we are delighted to be given the opportunity to show some of our larger art works and prints. They are exhibited on the walls of the beautiful nineteenth century glasshouses, where the cafe now resides. It is going to be fluid exhibition with changing art work, that reflects the work and seasons of  the nursery.

Float Press and Ricochet 2016 Exhibition - "Here in the Sticks" September 29, 2016 08:40

Here's your "official" invite! Come and see us and our wonderful printing partners at Ricochet for a collaborative exhibition that pushes the boundaries of graphical art. We call it "Here in the Sticks" because it denotes we are of the Wealden region - and because it focuses on the Wealden landscape. Private View is Sunday, 9th of October, from 11am to 5pm. Public exhibition is Tuesday, 11th of October, until 13th of October, from 11am until 4pm. Get in contact with us for more information if you need to know more.

Featuring...The Designers! February 03, 2016 20:56

We've been contacted by one of the local designers of one of the lovely village signs that dot our nearby landscape and we're going to take the bull by the horns (so to speak, not in real life!). When we started capturing the wonderful naive local art contained within the village signs our intent was to draw attention to the unique, quirky and iconic art on display for all to see. Yet, the artisans and designers who create these works tend to go unseen, unknown - and unrecognised. So, we're going to do something about it! Each month, if possible, we will write a short blog post featuring a village sign and a commentary about the designer - particularly if they are still living - and need to earn a crust of bread and such, as well as get some deserved attention for their skills! This month we are kicking off with Brenzett and the fabulous design by Stephan Goodban. Stay tuned as we stand up a blog piece on his art and his design philosophy!

Prints, designs and so much more, so come and see us!
