Friday in the studio, again...
I wouldn't dare suggest that this "Friday in the studio" thing is going to become a theme... I have nowhere near enough confidence in our regular blogging abilities to deem it as such ;) But whilst I'm feeling inspired with the camera, why not!
Firstly, as usual we have some extra faces in the studio this week, including Darci who came to do her year 10 work experience with us. We don't always have a lot for students to do when they come here (depends whether or not we have a market coming up) but if there's enough quiet time we encourage them to stencil cut their own design to print on some fabric.

This week I was also loving the overprints that have appeared on our latest drop cloth. The drop cloth gets printed on whenever a fabric is less than 150cm wide, so we don't get ink on our glued table:

And last but not least...
Stacks and stacks of fabric! Fresh from the heat setters and back in the shop. Yay!!!
Ahhh it feels good to be back on track with a studio full of fabric again :)
