Screen Printing - Woodpeckers

Today, I was screenprinting with my lovely friend Mariska at Badger Press, Bishops Waltham. We hired the studio under their open access.terms. It was a great day where I was experimenting with printing onto fabric.

I'm really pleased with the results. I will make some of the prints available to sell & make some limited edition cushions too. Let me know if you would lile to preorder!

This is a start of a range of short videos documenting my drawing processes.

In this film I draw my new paisley motifs and I use my lightbox to trace and rework individual design elements.
