Hop Picking






















I realised I was going to post about this print straight after the opening of my show and never got round to it!
I produced an exclusive print for Mascalls Gallery, in conjunction with my ABC exhibition, looking at the Hop Picking tradition associated with the Kent countryside. London East Enders used to come down in the summers to pick hops to make money to take back home with them. This print is a celebration of that history and was a way of linking my base in East London to the more rural Paddock Wood in Kent where the gallery is based.
It is a limited edition of 30, £120, 5 colour screen print. Print size is 76 x 49.5cm and is currently available exclusively from Mascalls Gallery.
