New Workshop Dates

We have some new dates for textile screen-printing and lino printing workshops. The workshops will take place in our studio in October and November. We also have a special festive workshop taking place in November. Pop over to our workshops page on our site for more information and to book a place!

Recently we've been getting a lot of enquiries from customers that want to buy our fabric by the meter... So with some very helpful advice from the folks over at Ink & Spindle in Melbourne we are going to attempt to build our own fabric printing table. Will be quite a small table to start off with, probably around 3m long.....will see how it goes form there!

Above are some photos of how we are printing fabric at the moment. It involves printing one section then shifting the fabric along and aligning it very carefuly before printing the next section. It's a slow can't wait to get the printing table sorted.

Printing Lampshade Panels

Here's some photos of us printing fabric panels for our lampshades. As our maximum print area at the moment is around A2 we usually print one section then shift the fabric along to print the next section. It would be much easier with a proper fabric printing table!

New Products

We have been making some new products over the last few weeks and have just uploaded them to the Peris and Corr shop.

We've made some printed organic welsh blanket lampshades and printed welsh blanket cushions.We will be offering these in custom colours so get in touch if you would like your own colours printed.
We have also been printing a new patchwork design made up from a selection of drawings. We've used the fabric to make some small clasp purses, handmade bags, cushions and lampshades.
As the design is made up of lots of small sections all of these products will be unique as they will feature diferent sections of the design. There's a couple of examples of the small clasps above.

Happy Campers

We have just spent a few nights down in Bovey Tracey exhibiting at the Contemporary Craft Fair. Spending four nights in a tent in the cold and rain wasn't great though.

We made a lot of new products for the show we will be adding them to our shop over the next couple of weeks.

We had a brilliant time and met loads of other makers. Rebecca Callis had a stall next door to us, she makes delicate pots and mugs, our other neighbour was the jeweller Molly Perrin who made vintage looking lockets. Julia Parry-Jones was over the road, a jeweller who makes amazing pieces from silver, wood and jewels.

New Workshops

We ran a couple of screen-printing workshops last year and they went really well, so we will be running a few more this spring and summer. We will be starting off with a lino printing workshop in March and have dates planned for printing and sewing your own cushion, printing and sewing your own purse, printing your own tea towels and printing and sewing your own soft toy workshops! Pop over to our workshops page for more information.

Below is a quick mock up of a soft toy pattern we've been working on - needs a bit of fine tuning!
All our workshops are suitable for beginners, so don't be put off if you haven't done any printing or sewing before as we will be here to help you.

Places are limited to 4 people on most of our workshops, you can book through our website or just give us a ring or an e-mail if you have any questions

A Post!

The snow just before Christmas messed up our printing schedule a bit so we had some catching up to do this month. We are back on top of everything now, and are busy working on various printing and sewing work.
There's a few new products available in our shop including some clasp purses and posters. The welsh blanket purses are sold out at the moment but we will be making some more soon and will be printing this pattern on other items as well.
