"I really enjoyed the process of learning something new and our weekly printing sessions have boosted my mental wellbeing massively. Each week I took on something really, ambitious and feel so proud of my work. It has been a real safe space for me, and I have loved my time here. It gave me a sense of belonging again.”

OFFICIAL UNVEILING OF THE
'OUR PLACE IN TIME' PROJECT
On Thursday 29th June, the Mayor and the High Sherriff of Suffolk will be the distinguished guests in attendance at the official unveiling of this year's 'Our Place in Time' Wall-hanging. The event will take place in the Hold and the wall-hanging will remain on display for the general public until the Autumn, when it will then be archived in the Suffolk records office as an historical record of the views and opinions of young people here in Ipswich of the year 2022. We do hope you will visit the Hold and see the wall-hanging and enjoy the other displays that are on show there.
ROAD TO RECOVERY, 2023
We have been commissioned by the NHS through the East Suffolk and North Essex Foundation trust, (ESNEFT) to deliver two of our six week Road to Recovery Courses for Long Covid sufferers. The first course began on June 1st and the second will begin after the summer holidays in September. Road to Recovery is seen by the Long Covid Clinical Team, as a valuable way of helping sufferers to cope with their symptoms and to rebuild the confidence that many have lost due to this condition.
FREE PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP FOR THE DUKE
On Saturday 6th June, Tower Street Print Project ran a free printmaking workshop for customers of the Duke of Marlborough Pub in Somersham, as a way of supporting another community business.
We set up a pop-up printshop in their restaurant and taught eight locals how to design and print a two colour linocut.
They thoroughly enjoyed the creative experience and were interested to find out about community businesses and how the can support each other.
