Last week we had the great pleasure of visiting National Trust Ickworth to see our print in action and it didn’t disappoint! Ickworth is an amazing place, with over 1800 acres of parkland and such beautiful buildings including the Rotunda which, until Jan 2nd 2024, is housing a ‘Staged Splendour of Georgian Christmas’ Experience.
The project idea was thought up and brought to life by the team at Ickworth with much planning and organising and even dressing up in Georgian outfits so the visitors can enjoy a real-time Georgian experience.
The printed side of the project consisted of many different elements. We worked with the team to ensure that we could help bring their concepts and vision to life for their visual walk through the Georgian period at the house.
Amongst other things, we printed trees for inside and lots of animals which can be found on the Georgian Christmas trail around the property. All printed on 10mm foamex board material on our Jetrix flat bed wide format press and then cut out to form the individual shapes.
We also printed the Theatre staged scene, with the backdrop, a lovely water colour style picture of the Rotunda, being one of our favourite pieces.
We received this lovely message from Ickworth:
“I wanted to write to you to say how absolutely delighted we are with the printed materials you’ve made for our Georgian Christmas event. Even though we ask you to make us some weird and wonderful things, and we may ask for very tight turnarounds you are always so professional, kind, and enthusiastic about the things we want to create. I can’t thank you enough for all your support this year, we feel incredibly lucky that we have built up this lovely relationship with you all and look forward to seeing what we collaborate on in the future. “

It really was a great project to be involved in from start to finish and great to see it now being enjoyed by the many visitors to Ickworth.
