hand made stencils

a couple years ago, I was approached by a designer about the possibility of embarking on a lo-fi print studio project in Bethnal Green. Nothing came of it but I remember having a conversation with him about a group of zimbabwean screen printers, also known as the Highfield Arts Club who print from the back of a bus, make their ink from old rubber tyres and cut their stencils by hand. There is an article in Eye Magazine, Issue 71, for further research but I found a few images for stencil inspiration.
