Leeds Print Workshop // Tue 21 Jun 2016 03:32 pm

Leeds Print Workshop, a new hub for printmaking in the centre of Leeds, will be opening its doors this summer. The workshop will be a co-operative, membership-based printmaking studio, open to all those with an interest in print. Members will come to the space to do screen printing, intaglio, linocut, bookbinding and other print techniques in a friendly, well-equipped workshop. We are currently in the process of preparing the space and gathering support and hope to be open by the end of summer this year.

My new comic book, On Sanity: One day in two lives,  is a rather special one. Not only because it has given me a chance to improve on a zine I made in 2008 but because, well… how many artists get to make a work with their mum?

Hayley Scott // Thu 28 Apr 2016 05:36 pm

I'm  Hayley Scott, a music journalist and DIY music promoter based in Leeds with plans to open a new DIY music venue, record shop, cafe and bar in LS6. Leeds has long been a city that’s fostered a music scene that is as vibrant as it is often overlooked. That’s somewhat changed lately: as ever, beyond the mainstream things are kept quietly underground, but Leeds is increasingly cited as a city that’s synonymous with DIY music, and it’s this attitude of doing things on your own terms that’s keeping our music scene alive and well.
