Funky Birds from a funky lady. How cute are these?? Design is not just about shapes but colour too!
Shona Farr was the fifth participant in our screen-printing workshop yesterday and is a fabric lover from way back. Together with husband Jason, Shona owns and operates Funky Fabrix, an on-line store that specialises in vintage fabrics as well as Australian designer fabric. The store now has a physical presence right here in Brisbane at Mitchelton. I am looking forward to visiting the store soon and including it as one of Thea & Sami's new stockists of hand-printed sustainable fabrics and homewares.
I promise that the fabrics will be listed very soon on our own shopping site too.
Shona was very productive yesterday and is seen here busily cutting out another stencil of a cute bird and tree. In addition to her calico prints, she managed to print a tea-towel plus 3 organic cotton t-shirts for her children. I hope they don't mind the matching outfits :)
Towards the end of the class, everybody is usually blow-drying their work so they can take it home. It's always a challenge getting people to stop printing in the Saturday class but that's okay because it shows that they are having fun.
Shona will be returning to the Thea & Sami studio in February to do our t-shirt commercial screen-printing class.
