as you may of noticed blogger's been down and I lost yesterday's post - I will try to repost it. it's funny how when one element gets interrupted - how it changes the flow of things.
above images - some new letterpress designs and a shot of the store.
last night was my last natural dye class at the workroom (thanks julie & karyn) and I got some pretty amazing results - will post that tomorrow. I have stained hands to show off.
I have so much going on next month - I was preparing photographs for the possibility of including our shop in a condenast magazine, plus this same magazine took our large triangle tote bag to photograph (I hope it goes well and when it does I will let you know when it's out) - in june I was invited to do a special one day show at a large american home retailer - will give you more info on that soon. also - in june I will be doing a joint show with emma nishimura for the living with washi show (not sure if you remember - emma and I did a show together at the print studio in hamilton) and finally in june I was invited to be part of an exhibition called 50 years of art - a retrospective show of past award winners in a show celebrating 50 years of the TOAE.
the drywall is being installed on our walls in our attic space right now and our contractor says that he might be done next week - yeah!
thanks to my bro davis who spent some hours this week helping me sew tea towels - even with the start of a new job he was kind to help out his sis and also thanks to my older sis who will be coming to watch the kids on the weekend so that j and I have uninterrupted work time.
:: lots to do - lots to make this weekend - enjoy your weekend friends! xxa ::
