New Incunable Print Shop

Date: Fri, 16 Jan 2015 - Sat, 28 Feb 2015

Venue: Phoenix Café Bar

We're displaying a collection of 3D print blocks and prints in our café bar – all created by the public at our New Incunable Print Shop exhibition during its successful run at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot in November – to give you a real flavour of the exhibition and the brilliantly original artworks produced.

This participatory exhibition, run in partnership with artist collective Juneau Projects, invited people to make print blocks, and use them to design their own artworks and posters to order.

We're also holding a couple of free drop-in workshops so you can have a go at making your own 3D printed woodblocks – the next one is on Tue 17 Feb from 1-7pm. A limited number of small group sessions are available until 28 Feb by prior arrangement; if you'd like to arrange a session for a school or community group please contact

We're still taking orders for posters too, so if you'd like a one-off design – for free – send us details of your event via It could be a party you're arranging, a club night you're going to, or even a gig you loved 'way back when'. You'll receive your design by email, ready for you to print out.

The New Incunable Print Shop is part of Affective Digital Histories, a research project exploring how communities change with urban decline and regeneration.

Two new apps – Hidden Stories and Sounds of the Cultural Quarter – have also been launched as part of the Affective Digital Histories project, and give a fascinating insight into the history of Leicester's Cultural Quarter. Find out more at
