I am working on many things these days - one of the aspects of being a maker/designer and owning a small business is that the list of things to do is long and the list seems to go in a circle - just when I thought I caught my breath there's more to do. I forgot that this weekend is easter and a holiday. I think my family and I will take a fews days off - to recharge.
one of the things on my to do list is to develop my other work that isn't production based. I wanted to show you a close-up of the composition series watercolours that I am using as a reference for the natural dyed piece. I was talking with lizz from the textile studio at harbourfront and I am really interested in taking her one day polychromatic printing workshop - if you can imagine it's like watercolour painting on fabric using dye - way cooler than the way I'm explaining it. I think her next class is early may. let me know if you want more info - it's a pretty awesome screen printing technique. I know a similar method but it's for paper using food colouring and meant only for paper - will give you a tutorial on that at a later date. I plan on using the polychromatic technique for the background of a special tea towel collaboration - more info on that soon.....(ok a little hint - the person I'm collaborating with is a certain someone who does wonderful watercolours and loves birds as much as I do).oh a few other things - I will be having a SPRING SALE soon (sometime on the weekend) - this one is pretty awesome - it will be for things I am no longer making and seconds - the items will be on sale for $15 or less. I will be sending out a newsletter letting you know the date and time it will start - sign up for the bookhou list so you don't miss out.
