Collective Arts

March 6, 2020Art Prints, Print Department

We had the pleasure of printing these lovely 3 colour prints for Collective Arts Brewery.

Collective Arts Brewing is a grassroots craft brewery that aims to fuse the creativity of craft beer with the inspired talents of emerging artists and musicians. Collective Arts Brewing was founded on two beliefs: The first that creativity fosters creativity. And the second, that creativity yields delicious pints. We feature limited-edition works of art on our beer cans and labels, and we work to make sure the liquid on the inside is as diverse and creative as the artists we profile.

Our brewery is located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This is where we brew everything from our flagship IPA Ransack the Universe to our World Beer Cup-winning Stranger than Fiction porter. In our taproom we pour up to 10 different beers at one time, samples and flights, we host brewery tours and live entertainment weekly. Stop by to see our beer bottle gallery showcasing every artist we’ve worked with over the past 6 years.

Hoglumps Q + A

December 25, 2019Storefront

Hoglumps is run by the talented Alex Brownell.
Lovely screen printed goods and textiles, handmade in Canada.
Check out our Hoglumps Artist Q + A!

How did you start?
I’ve been sewing since I was a child, I think I learned to sew in Brownies (the thing before Girl Scouts). I would make little plushies from socks, and alter clothing to my taste. My interest in sewing led me to the Craft & Design program for textiles at Sheridan College. There I learned more about dyeing and screen printing fabric. From there I started to make my own little projects on the side and sell at a few craft shows. And so Hoglumps slowly began.

What is your process? What art tool could you not live without?
My process starts with a rough sketch and notes of my idea. Then I create a more detailed drawing with colour choices. Next I usually source fabric and hardware and make a few prototypes. I then screen print my fabric and cut out the pattern pieces. Then, SEW! Lots of sewing. And ironing. 
One tool I could not live without is a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors. Oh and clear gridded rulers! They both make the process so much easier.  

Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from a lot of things. Stuff that makes me laugh or smile, like comic books or my cat, flowers and bugs I see on a walk. I also get a lot of inspiration to continue making by watching my friends and mentors make a living from their work. Watching them succeed is awesome. 

Is there anything you are currently working on that you are excited about?
Recently I have been playing with the idea of making some clothes with my screen printed patterns. I also just opened an online shop on Etsy.
