Screen printing

As well as my knitted and crocheted products I also design a collection of screen printed fabrics.  I print these by hand using images based on my drawings.  I love screen printing!  Here are some pictures from my recent day of printing.

Mixing pigments...
I use environmentally friendly, water based pigments to print my fabrics.

Navy/grey floral print colourway
I make a range of products from these fabrics, including this
Floral Print Cushion, shown here in white/fawn colourway
As well as these Floral Zip Purses in various colours
I am currently developing a new collection of print designs which will be launched later this year
