The last few weeks I've been working on my online shop. I've been improving my product descriptions so all the relevant information is there for the customer to see. But the main thing I've been working on is my product photography. I liked the lifestyle shots I had for my tea towel photos so I just up dated them, but I hadn't got a good lifestyle shot for my napkins. So after much trial an error I finally found a look I was happy with!
So my Colour workshop was on saturday the 10th May. I had a lovely group of 6 ladies all wanting to learn about colour, some were quilters, knitters others wanted to choose colours for interiors. It was really good fun and they all left with an idea for their colour schemes. It was all finished off with tea and cake! A great way to finish the day!
Now my attention is on Saturday 24th May for my next Craft Fair where I'll be launching my lovely duck-egg green range of tea towels and aprons. These will soon be available in my online shop.
Launching my new Children's Apron.
This delightful apron will keep your child's clothes clean and protected while they create delicious treats for you in the kitchen! Suitable for older children aged approx 7-11 years old in blue and white, with polka dots or stripes. Made from 55% linen 45% cotton and digitally printed with water-based inks, so friendly on the environment. A great look for budding young bakers!
On saturday 10th May I am going to be running a one day colour workshop at Folly Fabrics in Bampton, Oxfordshire. The day will start off with understanding basic colour theory and some rules for creating your own colour schemes. Suitable for anyone wanting to understand how to put colours together for any design project, from knitting & quilting to choosing you kitchen colour scheme! Once the basics are covered participants will then put what they have learnt into practice by create their own colour schemes, and I'll be able to give guidance if needed. In the afternoon, we will go on to discover how colours interact with each other, how to create depth using colours and the moods inspired by different designs. We will finish with a colour clinic an tea and cake! The only way to end the day...
I'm really looking forward to doing this. It's been fun putting the workshop together and finding examples. There are some amazing images on the web, design-seeds have some fabulous colour schemes inspired by nature...roll on May
Last weekend I had sometime to do some painting! I've been planning this design for ages and now I've finally put paint to paper! I want to share my new design with you. It will be the second design in my Burford Green range.
