Jealous Gallery Pop-up Print Studio at Heal's in Tottenham Court Road

This week the Jealous Gallery are taking over the front windows of Heals and running a print workshop in the space.  You can go along and learn how to print, plus buy some prints from Jealous.  I popped along yesterday and it was interesting and great fun.  I particularly liked watching them make the Jayoon Choi 'People' prints.

"Featuring artists such as Jayoon Choi and Diana Taylor - and showcasing the Jealous Needs You initiative - Jealous at Heal’s will see the window space split into three distinct areas, each of which will play host to 3-4 different artists who will be printing editions live on site, building up the walls and windows and keeping the showcase space active and exciting throughout the week.
This highly interactive and creative project will allow customers to chat to the artists, illustrators and designers on-site, and in some cases take part in the process by personalising and printing their own editions. Prices for small prints range from £35 to £600.
Throughout the event, customers will also have the opportunity to print their own ‘moustache mask’ - designed by Damien Weighill. There will be approximately six moustache shapes to choose from and a rainbow selection of inks to print them with. You’ll be able to print them yourself by hand on stiff card stock. When dry, the prints are attached to lollipop sticks so that they can be held, like a masquerade mask, in front of the face. These ‘moustache masks’ will be free to make and to take away, and will be available at all times throughout the week.
Customers will also be able to pull their own prints of Jayoon Choi’s line drawings, made of passers-by on the street outside Heals. These will be screenprints, in black ink on white paper.
The Jealous Gallery team will working throughout the entire week at the Pop-Up Studio. You do not need tickets to attend the print studio space or to take part in any of the printing sessions."
