The Print House x Collective open studio was the first of its kind, hosting a bit of a party and showcasing a collaboration of creative expression within the walls of our space.
Combined with some amazing company, a variety of artistic talent on display and a couple crates of Peroni thrown in, it was a celebration of creativity within a welcoming and growing community. It marked a new beginning for Print House, and in doing so, was a nice reminder of the grassroots of why we opened, and the reason we love what we do.
With the help our family across the space, Print House opened its doors for a peek into our office, showcasing an amazing projection mapping by The Collective, some live music by The Pineapple Jam and live printing that transferred our guest’s drawings onto T-shirts in minutes.
The timing coincided with the HKwalls Art Festival and was a great way to wrap up the art filled week. Nearly all corners of the industrial building we now call our own has been plastered with murals ranging from local to international artists, to spray paint based to marker dotted pieces.
Our building is just one of the many to have been fortunate enough to be featured in the festival this year. And so, should you find yourself in the region, the scene is definitely worth a look- and while you’re at it, popping up to say hey for a Peroni on the balcony!
It was a great social event that helped put us on the Wong Chuk Hang map, firmly rooted in amongst the variety of hidden gems that are scattered throughout the industrial district. With a range of art galleries, quaint restaurant and bars already established in the area, it really was a nice public introduction to the neighbourhood that garnered support from a lot of the local businesses.
Print House and The Collective are already thinking about the next open studio- so keep an eye on our newsletter and Facebook page for more info. Until then, our doors are always open and beers readily chilled for any you wanting to pop by and say hi!
