Thankyou Tracy Hayes at Fudge for another year of cosmic colour and a new palette of #pinkhair using Paintbox. Since going pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness I have become fond of these new found hues for me! Tracy mixed the "Pink Riot" colour and mixed with "Whiter Shade of Pale" to create the pastel softer shade on top of the more intense sections underneath. Follow Fudge on Instagram to find out more formulas and styles for inspiration.

Leading on from the soft launch of "Peckham Levels" last week to the official opening night on Friday where 3rd Rail were hosting live screen-printing. Visitors could get a taster of their open access facilities by making a personalised tote bag with a pattern from Supermundane. The workshop which ran throughout the whole weekend was part of their campaign to gather enough funding via Kickstarter to complete the final build for London's largest public screen-print studio. Check out their different packages to snap up bargains from seasonal gifts to your own creative space within their floor of Peckham Levels when its completed in January. Find out how to pledge here. Only one week to go to reach their target!

In the midst of a bleak mid-winter snow fall, lets talk about a beach! The beach in question is the gallery and agency "Beach London" whose space has relocated from Cheshire Street to Kentish Town this year. The last exhibition for 2017 just launched with a private view to tally up with the time-out of the Everpress orders on t-shirts from artworks within the show. "Flags" is a group show of flag designs that can be bought as stand alone works of art or as a wearable print on a tee in this collaborative project with Everpress. Artists include Studio Moross, Rob Flowers, HYT, Alec Doherty and my two favourites shown in the second photo here by Adam Higton and Sarah Todd. The gallery and gift shop are open above Camdens Daughter from Friday to Sunday, 12pm - 5pm.
Find out about their offsite festive workshop on Thursday, hosting wreath making with Hattie Flowers and marbling wrapping paper at Bailey Nelson here.

Simon Whybray's pink staircase for Peckham's multi-storey carpark entrance to Bold Tendencies has undergone a multi-colour makeover to launch the location's new venture "Peckham Levels". The empty shell has metamorphosed into a fully fledged seven story complex for creative arts and the community. Here are Magda Kaggwa's photos from the opening night on Friday when the construction site first opened its doors to the public. Check my recent post about 3rd Rail screenprinting who will be part of the residency of artists offering services and studio spaces as part of their positioning within the cooperative. Although they are currently raising money to complete their resource, they were onsite hosting live screen-printing of SuperMundane tote bags for the private view. Find out more about the multidisciplinary multi-plex here and back 3rd Rail on Kickstarter here.
