Bagasse Circulating All Over the World Project

Recently the staff at London Printworks Trust received an unusual bit of mail through the post. Textile students from Musashino Art University located in Tokyo, Japan asked London Printworks Trust to take part in their project using ‘bagasse’ (a material from sugar cane) recently outlined as an environmentally friendly resource.

Above shows the ‘bagasse’ postcard depicting a world map which we were asked to mark with our location. We put together a little flock print, shown above, which is now winging its way back to Japan to be shown in an exhibition entitled JAPANTEX2010 starting in November 2010.

We’re all hoping to see photographs from the exhibition, showing other wonderful little postcards.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
