St Cuthberts Mill visits Jealous Gallery and Print Studio!
Apprentice Nicola Dobson was kindly invited to stay with John Purcell (John
Purcell Paper) last week in London. Nicola was introduced to the world of
printmaking by visiting an extensive array of printmakers.
Jealous Gallery and Print Studio
Nicola and John were given an extensive tour by Nick at the
Jealous Studio. He took them through the whole process that they go through
with their artists. Nick also stated that they use a vast amount of St
Cuthberts papers, as they are delighted with the range of papers on offer.
During the tour they spoke with some of the printers who were working with the
650gm² Somerset paper.

The printmakers said how much they used Somerset and stated
that it took the inks really well. It is ideal for prints with large areas of
ink as it is heavier and so less likely to cockle under a large inked

“Jealous is a very trendy company and it was quite different
than the other studios we visited. They started off with one press on one floor
of their building and have now expanded into the whole of the building. They
work with a lot of artists including street artists. Nick told me that they
have been so busy that they are not taking any new commissions now for 6 weeks.
They specialise in screenprinting and digital printing and they also do a hybrid
of the two. If a print requires a lot of colours they will often start by doing
a digital print and finish with some screen printing on top. Otherwise is it
very costly. The gallery on the ground floor displays some of their prints and
a huge amount were on Somerset paper.” Nicola Dobson, St Cuthberts Mill.
