SCREENPRINTING AND TECHNICAL COLLABORATIONS
We believe in re-uniting artists and designers with the production processes their ideas require. By producing locally, artists and designers are able to have greater creative and quality control, expanding the possibilities for their products and increasing awareness of their designs environmental impact.
Spacecraft produces its own printing pastes, mixing pigments with a variety of water based mediums based on the desired aesthetic, application surface and end-use. Stewart Russell has been specialising in pigment printing for over 30 years bringing a highly sophisticated approach to the mixing and application process. Pigment printing allows colour to be custom mixed and reduces chemical waste as all excess ink can be re-used.
Spacecraft exposes and develops printing screens and has invested in a wide variety of screen meshes which enables us to print on any surface including fabrics, concrete, wood, paper and glass.
DESIGN FOR ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS
Spacecraft works with architects, property developers and interior design clients. We believe in collaboration and problem solving to create the optimal artwork and print design solution for individual projects. Our unique print studio brings an open mind to each individual project. In working with clients we place no hierachy on materials, techniques or styles, believing in collaboration and problem solving to find the optimal solution for our clients.
