Exhibiting and printing

Here's a couple of images of my table at 'An Oasis in the City' in Bowdon on Saturday.  I met some great people and ate the most amazing banoffi ice cream I've ever had!  It was nice to receive positive feedback on my new products too.  Talking of which below are a couple of quick photos of my new Pattern notebooks...

These are printed onto 100% recycled card, with recycled blank pages inside.  They come packaged in a biodegradable sleeve.  Available in my online shops soon!

Screen printing D I Y

In the last week I've been working hard to get my new screen printing workshop up and running at home.  So far so good, I've done one job so far, a wedding invitation commission which involved a run of double sided prints, two colours each side.

The new table is great, I've found it fine registering each colour layer and the vacuum bed which is powered by a hoover is very effective.  A big thankyou to my boyfriend Sam for making the table for me, and painstakingly drilling all those tiny holes..!

I've joined the local print workshop in Kendal in order to use the exposure unit, every other aspect of the print making process I will now be doing from home.  

I'm looking forward to much more freedom to print on a regular basis, expect to see new Memo work much more often!!
