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/.
Some of my staffordshire figures for the clumsy are going to be in this KK outlet organised pop-up in chinatown LA...unlikely - but if you're in the area pop in to check it out - lots of great Christmas present ideas!
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!
