One lovely lady emailed me a 'thank you' telling me how inspired she was after last Saturday's screen-printing workshop but truly the class always inspires me too. I am delighted to be sharing some of the weekend's creations with you and hope that you are inspired too.
Colour makes me happy. A simple floral motif repeated in rows of colour makes for a fun fabric design. Creator Julie Horsten is an interior designer at IKEA so maybe some of that Scandinavian influence has rubbed off? The print is a little reminiscent of Marimekko's famous Unikko design.
Drying fabric is serious business.
I have a weakness for owls so couldn't resist showing you this cutie also printed by Julie.
It must be the Spring in the air because here are some more florals. Red and black is always a winning combination.
This is Corrie Furner, the creator of the previous print. She had so much fun that she wants to come back to do another class! You don't have to do that Corrie just remember that practise, practise and more practise makes one a perfect screen-printer.
Kirsty Hicks printed Flannel Flowers which are lovely Australian wildflowers.
Here's Kirsty with her 'Peas in a Pod' tea-towel. Three peas representing her three kids. How adorable.
Friends and interior designers Tammy Butterfield and Margaret Sullivan experimented with different shapes for repeat designs.
Tammy is a wizard with the craft knife and even brought along her own professional set to cut her stencils. How exquisite is this fishing boy silhouette?
I love the lines of Margaret's screen-print and think that this would make a great fabric design if developed further and repeated.
