live screen printing on brick lane

Juris from Screen Street got in touch to let us know about a cool project happening in London this weekend on Brick Lane, I could write it all out for you but their press release does more than a fine job of it:

Screen Street invites you to join for an exciting live screen-printing event! Very rarely do you get the opportunity to see a screen printer at work, but now’s your chance!

Not only will you be able to see with your very eyes exactly how the screen printing process works, but you’ll even be able to purchase your own special edition screen print t-shirt. We’ve teamed up with fabulous artist Yema Yema who has created three characters to choose from.

Each character is cute and quirky in their own right, so we’re sure that you’ll fall in love with one of them, if not all three! You can have either: Mr. Benji Time, Keep quiet, Rock and Yema Roll.

Since the screen-printing process takes less than 2 minutes, you’ll be able to wear your t-shirt straight away! How’s that for fast fashion!

At £15 a shirt it’s a great way to buy something truly unique, as they will only be available on this day. Alternatively, if you have a t-shirt of your own, maybe even one you’ve made yourself, we’ll be happy to screen print one of our characters on that for a reduced cost of £5.

It really will be a fun experience for everyone, bring your friends, and bring your family, even your Grandma! I’m sure she’ll love a Mr Benji t-shirt!
Come join us at: ?
Backyard Market, 146 Brick Lane, London, E1 6RU? | From 10am – 5pm on February 10th + 17th + 24th 2013

I like the idea, but is it really possible to screen print something and then wear it straight away? I was under the impression that there was a curing time that involved heat lamps and blowers and I presumed that process would take a bit longer than 2 minutes, these guys look like they know what they’re doing though so I don’t want to be too cynical, maybe give them 3 minutes to print the tee before complaining about how long it’s taking. Pity that I hadn’t known about this earlier since HYA was in London on the 10th, would have been cool to check out.
