A social enterprise that runs workshops to teach vulnerable people the art of hand screen printing has opened in Orchard Square.

Printed By Us is a social enterprise owned by Cathedral Archer Project.

The company runs workshops to teach vulnerable people the art of hand screen printing and sell exclusive art prints, mugs, t-shirts and sweaters online and in stores.

All profits from the sale of products and services are reinvested in the operation of other screen printing workshops and the development of the project.

The Archer Project, Orchard Square’s chosen charity for 2022, is a community-based charity in Sheffield that helps homeless and vulnerable people change their lives for the better.

Terry Murphy, from The Archer Project, said: “As a city center based charity, we are extremely grateful for the support of Orchard Square, located just around the corner from the Cathedral.

“At Printed by Us, we believe there is hope and a way forward for every person. Run as a social enterprise, all of our profits are reinvested into running more screen printing shops, developing of our project and the support of more vulnerable adults, most of whom are homeless, towards employment.

Orchard Square manager Shay Murray added: “Orchard Square is very proud to support The Archer Project in its ongoing work in our local communities to help those in need.

“Printed By Us provides positive change for vulnerable people to learn new skills, build confidence, and move forward into a fulfilling life.

“We are delighted to be able to host a Printed By US store in the square, supporting the project and providing our visitors with high quality print on ethically produced clothing. We wish the team at Printed By Us in Orchard Square all the best in their new location.”
