We caught up with fabric printing yesterday for first time in ages (or so it seemed). I just love this first stage of the screen-printing. The 2nd run brings the yardage design together.
The design, Fretwork in Blue Marine is available for purchase here. Some of this will be made up as lampshades and new table runners.
New 'Floribunda' film positive. The screen will be ready today; in time for our students to print in our Fabric Printing class next Tuesday & Wednesday. We have one spot left if you wish to join us.
I've been looking at new heavier weights of linens for upholstery. It's been so hard to source these and I'm waiting for more samples to arrive from Europe. The biggest problem at the moment is that the 400+ gsm fabrics only seem to be 140 cm wide - which is the width of our prints. One linen mill may be able to make them wider for us. Will keep you posted.
So do you have a big Easter weekend planned? We're not celebrating until the following weekend but I am sooo looking forward to a big rest tomorrow! I hope you all have a lovely time with loved ones.
