We managed to fill the room with a complete range of handmade goods (and this is where for once our disparate interests comes into it's own, we could appeal across a range of tastes with Jim's more cool modern aesthetic to my quirky hand drawn approach). We made art prints, t-shirts, cards, tea towels, lavender bags, brooches, bags.. And people liked our stuff! Thank you to all who came, you were brilliant and it meant so much to us, that you came up those stairs to look around! You came, you bought, and even asked for more!
We’ve found we are happiest making stuff with our hands, and if we can combine a few skills together, even better! It is hugely satisfying to see digital designs leap out of the computer into the real world and land on a piece of fabric we’re printing; seeing a present wrapped in our own scribbled paper almost jiggling to be ripped apart - using tea-towels printed with lavender bits grown in our own garden - I cannot totally fathom why this is so deeply satisfying!
We are not chefs, farmers or in any way able to cater for more than the usual Sunday lunch, but we do love our food - and all things foodish! So to honour all our culinary favourites we have begun Plat du Jour - a series of limited edition food worshipping prints - ‘ Onglet’ is the first one we rustled up, then ‘ Polpo’ came next. It really has been too long in between, so to gather a bit of momentum, we are developing a proper menu of tasty images hoping to show you all this autumn 🍂
