The Mystery Tubes project was developed to give Islington Mill artists, residents and friends the chance to be involved in the Mill’s fundraising effort. The Engine House has asked artists at various stages of their career to donate print-based work, be it letterpressed, screenprinted, hand-drawn or Risographed. The pieces vary between A6 (postcard) and A2 (poster) in size. These works are then put into sets of six and sealed in a Mystery Tube.
You might get an original hand illustrated piece, or an early screenprinted edition. You will get work worth over £100, often with previously unseen pieces. Each tube contains six items and costs £25 +£10 postage and packaging. Perfect to fill your walls with new artworks, or as a gift!
Mystery Tubes will be available to buy online below or at our vending machine in Fred Aldous art shop, Manchester in April.
