Meet the printmaker is an online event where you get to know everything about your favorite printmaker!
It's sort of an online meet & greet. The printmaker tells his / her story, after which I (Kirsten Peerdeman-Luijendijk, founder & owner of Atelier Indrukwekkend) go in depth with the printmaker. And last but not least, it is time for your questions!
Voor deze editie hebben we niemand minder dan Holly Brown (all the way from NY, USA) uitgenodigd.
Holly is an artist, printmaker and founder of Brooklyn, NYC-based studio, Clockworks Press. She creates bold, urban images that are hand-carved into collagraphs. Printing for the wall, garments, handbags and the home, Holly's iconic water towers and bridges have been featured in Pressing Matters magazine, the NY Post and at the Denim Days festival. Passionate about sustainability, Holly prints predominately on up cycled denim using inks derived from textile production waste. In addition, Holly is a Speedball Professional Relief Artist, teaches elementary art and printmaking workshops.
Get to know all about Holly and her passion for (collagraph) printmaking and more! And ask her everything you always wanted to know!

About NY Denim Hangs
NY Denim Hangs is a grassroots community organization in New York City that was founded to bring denim lovers together. The purpose of the NY Denim Hangs Podcast is to pull the curtain back on the global denim industry and share the stories of the people that comprise it. We take you beyond the denim to present the mills, makers, manufacturers and marketers in a series of “mini hangs” that we hope will educate, inform and inspire our community.
Follow us on Instagram at @nydenimhangs. All welcome. Come hang.
As many of you know, in addition to running Clockworks Press I am also a full time visual art teacher at an all girls private school in Manhattan. I have been back working at the school since August 24th and with students since August 31st. During these uncertain times, I hope that I am bringing some normalcy back to the lives of these children and myself. It hasn't been easy with all the adjustments in our routines, but I truly believe we will be stronger in the end!
During the end of my summer vacation I had the unique opportunity to be a part of season one of the NY Denim Hangs podcast. I have been a member of this NY based group for a couple years now and it has truly opened many doors for me both personally and professionally. The group is filled with denim experts, enthusiasts, makers and mills. I was honored when they asked me to talk about my journey and printing on denim!
I hope you will take time to listen to all the episodes as they have worked hard to curate a variety for the launch of season one.

Clockworks Press is proud to be a participating artist in
the #iclapfor project by Artist Ian Berry!
A little backstory:
Ian Berry and I have been friends for a few years now. We first met in person at NY Denim Days 2017 where he was a featured artist and then again during his Secret Garden Installation at The Children's Museum in NYC and most recently at Denim Days Amsterdam. I have always been mesmerized with the way Ian creates his images using only pieces of denim, no dyes, no bleach only the natural fades. In addition to being an amazing artist, I am proud to call him a friend. When he asked if I would participate in his I Clap For project there was no hesitation, my answer was a big YES!
I Clap For
It began with an idea between father, Ian Berry and his son - now the aim for “I Clap For” is to create a platform to create a community and message of thanks during the COVID-19 pandemic - and continuing on past this moment in time to remember all of those who risked their lives on the frontlines.

Ian Berry lives & works from his London studio and was moved by the clapping, at 8pm on Thursdays every week in the UK. His son couldn’t wait for Thursdays to come, often asking ‘is it Thursday yet?’ and preparing for it. He saw how his friends in New York and elsewhere did it everyday, at 7pm.
With trying to get on with work in the studio while home schooling, they came up with the idea to make a clapping piece through the material he is best known for - denim. It was his son Elliott, 6, who took the photo of his hands. Ian sent it on as a simple card to say thank to some of his friends in the health service, many who had been sick.
While watching a film on a projector it was Elliott that said, can we put the clapping on there? Soon they were beaming it off the balcony of his home and an idea was born. . .

Who wants to clap alone? Ian Berry’s Clapping Hands were projected on many buildings but now he’s not alone, up step these International Artists to join him in their own way.
It is truly an honor to be a participating artist in this incredible initiative highlighting all the frontline workers around the world! Thank you, Ian!
