UTS @ Big Fag Press

Over the last two weeks we ran a workshop with 3rd and 4th year UTS Visual Communication students, introducing them to the offset printing process and giving them some hands-on experience with our press. The project grew out of a workshop UK designer Jonathan Barnbrook held with the students at UTS when he was in town earlier this year for the opening of this year’s Biennale of Sydney. The subject was co-ordinated by Kate Sweetapple, a UTS lecturer who is no stranger to the press.

As a group, they produced a two-colour, eight-panel publication, which folded out to a 1020 × 700mm poster. Each student also printed a smaller individual poster in black or silver – these were printed four to a plate. There are tentative plans for a launch or exhibition later in the year – watch this space for details.
