Thanks to the generosity of Garudio Studiage, we’re happy to announce our first prize giveaway (and it’s not ice cream). Anybody who has donated on our JustGiving page (and we’re very grateful) by 23:59 on Sunday 10 November will be entered into a draw for a fabulously creative and Peckham-themed prize from Garudio Studiage.
The more you donate, the higher your chances of winning. Each £5 donated equates to one entry into the draw. So if you donate £10, you’ll be entered twice.
More prizes will follow as the date of the launch on New Year’s Day 2014 moves ever closer.
Remember, every penny you donate goes directly to our chosen charity, St Christopher’s Hospice.
Wildlife of London. Oh, how we love London and all its natural splendour! Meet the flying ant, the feral pigeon and Camberhell’s genuine crack-addict squirrel in this twisted urban take on the souvenir tea towel.
Bag O’Nails. High quality meets low-taste in this hand screen printed bag featuring the iconic nail bar art from Peckham. Developed from Chris Ratcliffe’s screen printed ‘Blue Off – Licence Carrier Bags’ project, this tacky tote is a more practical celebration of what’s brilliantly bad about London.
Garudio Studiage is a Peckham-based creative collective set up by Chris Ratcliffe, Laura Cave, Anna Walsh and Hannah Havana.
With individual specialisms in screen printing, jewellery and painting, the group also work together and with friends, taking part in a wonderfully bizarre array of exhibitions and events, as well as making props, displays and products.
The appropriately glamourous and unpronounceable name is derived from the words ‘Garage studio’ which is exactly where the venture started out in 2003. Working amongst sand, stray cats and broken car parts, the collective started making screenprints and jewellery for sale and exhibition, and thus the mighty Garudio Studiage was born!
More recent times have seen a move to new premises and an expanding list of clients and projects, as well as the Garudio and Friends online shop.
