Dan Can Screen-Print

We've been so busy setting up the new studio that I hadn't actually seen Dan screen-print until yesterday. I had faith though when we printed directly onto our European linen; something I would never normally do with new staff.

Yay! Dan can screen-print. This is his first print - our beautiful Marguerite design in Cottage Blue. Perfection.

How wonderful that Dan can wash the screens while I take that time to catch up with phone calls. He really is this cheery every day.

This is our new ink trolley. It's very special. You don't see it, do you?

What if I told you that it had a previous life as a TV stand? Dan found it at our local Vinnies op shop for a whopping $5!

It was too low for our intended purpose so I suggested that we flip it and Dan relocated the castors so that it stands upright. It's exactly what we needed. You've got to love upcycling.

Your new Dan seems very handy. We could all do with a Dan every now and again. P.S. I saw one of your bags in Yass in a shop recently!
