Lagoonar

Lagoonar Screen Printing Lab is a newborn space that offers hand-pulled prints on t-shirts, tote bags and posters.
We use a manual machine built from recycled wood, appositely designed and created by a local woodworker.

We can either print an existing design or take care of the artwork, creating an original graphic following the artist's guidelines. 
Run by Laura Gamba and Fernando Nuti.

LAURA SAYS

"Screen printing is one of the most ancient printing techniques ever known. Despite its millennial age, many contemporary artists and craftsmen still choose it to replicate images, obtaining unique and authentic visual outputs against the anonymity of polished digital copies. This is what I love about screen printing: each squeegee pull, each layer of ink and each screen lift acts together to create special prints, all different and all high quality. It is always exciting to see mine or other artists' design taking concrete form on the surface and coming into life with their distinctive tactile finish. It's real fun to get messy, too."
