Since co founding screen print specialists one69A in 2009, the studio has gone from strength to strength, providing print services and commissioned products delivered to a commercial standard and a far-reaching education programme working with broad spectrum of esteemed organisations, artists and makers.
Based at Islington Mill in Salford, One69A are submersed in a fertile creative environment, which cultivates artist collaboration and production, regularly co producing with fellow artists and makers to deliver products and projects to a professional standard.
Overseeing the education and engagement offering of the studio, Sally has managed and delivered a substantial number of projects, working with internationally recognised organisations such as The Whitworth Art Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Arts Council Collection, Manchester Museum and Manchester Art Gallery.
Sally works predominantly in print but also incorporates other mediums within her education practice. In addition to delivering work as a creative practitioner, she curates, produces and develops creative programmes and exhibitions and has co written a published teachers resource.
Most recently, Sally has founded Salford Makers who are a collective of artists, designers, educators and makers.
They work individually and collaboratively on a variety of commissions, design projects, product development and social enterprise.
Committed to offering a diverse participatory programme, they are guided by principles of collaboration, inclusivity and wellbeing. Their workshops are suitable for beginners through to established artists and makers.
Their workshop studio is based at Islington Mill in Salford. Through the development of this space along with our participatory programme, they hope to support our community and beyond to enhance a dynamic culture of creativity and making in Salford.
