This weekend was spent at the Ink & Spindle studio with Lara Davies from Harvest textile studios, getting my hands dirty. Ryan, Jess and I (as well as Amber and Lien who we met there) had a great time learning to screenprint, and we were all pretty chuffed by the results.

Everyone hard at work

A lightbox is now one more thing on my list of stuff to buy
Ryan and Lara discussing the finer points of screenprinting. I'm so lucky to have a boyfriend who's genuinely interested in one of the same things I am! :)

My repeating pattern... haven't thought of a name for it yet.

The combined result of everyone's efforts
Well, I was planning to do a much wordier blog, but I'm buggered!
Thanks, Lara for a great weekend!
