Send to Print / Print to Send

Since the Impact 6 print conference in Bristol, London Printworks has been watching the popularity of 3d / rapid prototype printing grow to astonishing proportions. Research fellows at UWE were very aware of its potential, predicted that many designers would test the boundaries and materials of the printers as this new exhibition prepares to demonstrate.

Send to Print / Print to Send offers an impression of uses of 3D Printing in the design industry today. This timely exhibition shows work by designers and organisations who are developing the capabilities of this technology. In addition it will include examples of the increasingly important role 3D Printing plays in the design process, particularly during the complex prototyping stages.

Featuring pieces from the studios of both established and emerging designers, The Aram Gallery uses this exhibition as a way to examine how designers’ processes are developing to accommodate new technological advances. We offer our visitors an idea of what 3D Printing is, and how it is being contemporaneously used. This exhibition is not intended as an exhaustive overview, but a cross-disciplinary pick and mix of examples.

Send to Print / Print to Send will include works from the fields of architecture, industrial design, fashion, and product design.

Opens 13th January – 25th February 2012 at The Aram Gallery

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.
