Pop up London





More pop ups!  Fitted in a vist to the lovely Field Work shop and gallery on Rivington Street which is jam packed full of wonderful folky and decorative things perfect for Christmas presents - including some lovely hand bound note books by my friend Lotte Beatrix. The shop is curated and organised by Rose de Borman and Caitlin Hinshelwood who both produce very desirable hand printed and drawn textile products. Popped down yesterday to the Nothing but Navy store on Berwick Street which is filled with, well, nothing but navy products including some lovely hand made crockery by studio mate Hazel Stark.Field work photos from http://thepoundshop.org/field-work-pop-up-shop/.

Lu Flux





Finally got a chance this weekend to visit upstairs studio mate Lu Flux's pop-up shop in Spitalfields market - and it did not disappoint! She has displayed a wonderful selection of her trademark patchwork pieces as well as cushions, scarves, jumpers and more - my favourite is the 'Home Sweet Skirt'  If you're lucky you may even catch a glance of Burt the dog. Make sure you visit before it shuts on Christmas Eve - it is very inspiring!All photos © Lu Flux.

Krakow










Printing


After seeing the above roller fabric printing block at the Ethnographic museum in Krakow I was very pleased to come across a whole box of them at the Krakow Sunday fleamarket for a steal of a price (unfortunately hand luggage already crammed with books meant I could only buy one) - I have just tried it out making some (secret) Birthday wrapping paper and it is a brilliant graphic motif - very pleased!

Notebook

Looking back at quick sketches in my notebooks always amuses me...

Ethnographic Museum, Krakow











Just a glimpse of some of my favourite things from the brilliant folk collection at the Ethnographic Museum. I'm desperate to use crepe paper for absolutely everything now.
