Co-LAB

17/03/13 – Co-LAB officially open

Wow what a great day it was yesterday.

The one thing that we didn’t think would be working in time was the wonderful coffee machine, so when on Saturday morning the Co-LAB shop slowly filled with the aroma of ground coffee beans everybody breathed a sigh of relief and smiles filled faces.

The shop was busy all day and filled with great tunes as the DJ line up took turns at the decks.

A huge thanks to everybody who mucked in to make this happen (and happen on schedule), to all those that made the effort to put your head through the doors yesterday (and hopefully in the days, weeks, and months to come), to the artists who made those extra special touches, to the DJ’s for banging out da tunes, to all those who helped get Co-LAB out there re-blogging, sharing and re-tweeting and of course to Ujima Radio’s Mistri, although if you weren’t listening I can’t tell you why! (98FM)

Co-LAB is now open everyday at 2-4 Fairfax Street, Bristol, BS1 3DB – Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm.

1 Day to go!

With only a day left to go until the doors were thrown open to the public, there was a lot to do on Friday.

The t-shirts crew’s were in hanging up stock and pictures were frantically being screwed onto walls.  The huge music system got a make-over from a ‘mini’ Unwellcome Relatives’ crew, 3dom threw some colour around inside and the outside got a neon make over by Paris.

And with only a few finishing touches left to do first thing on the Saturday morning the opening was well on schedule!

Co-LAB HQ was a hive of productivity all day yesterday, things are really beginning to take shape and we are all getting super excited.

A massive thanks to everybody who helped out yesterday, it made a huge difference and thanks to all those who put their heads round the door to show some love.  Get the word out there, this place is going to be happening!

Taking a breather today to go visit some lovely Mum’s and then back to it on Monday!

Col-LAB opens 16th March 2013

It was a tough decision for us at Art-el Gallery to call it a day at The College Project at the end of last year, but they do say that as one door closes another opens and that is exactly what has happened.

Art-el has joined forces with the lovely PAPERpublication to form the collaborative community that is Co-LAB.

A coLABoration of 2 art galleries, a cafe,  4 T-Shirt companies and a publication all under one roof, this is going to be the new cool place to be.

The shop opens on the 16th March so come and join us for our opening at 2-4, Fairfax Street (corner of Nelson Street), Bristol BS1 3DB.

We are all currently working hard to turn this shop into the monster that is is destined to be, here are a few snap of work in progress .. as you can see there is still lots to do.
