Double Elephant Print Workshop
Exeter Phoenix, Bradninch Place,
Gandy Street, Exeter, EX4 3LS
In 2015, Double Elephant joined a group of NHS commissioners at Poltimor House, Devon, using our gazebo and a trailer to allow for a portable printing project. The workshop was designed to encourage the participants to rethink the way they work.
Each participant started out by composing a 6 word poem, based upon a time in their lives when they saw the world anew and reconsidered their preconceptions. Using the words from these poems, they learnt a letterpress printing technique to transfer them onto bags, before using screenprint to create images of birds alongside their slogans.
