My Creative Space

It's a beautiful day for screenprinting today! The chooks are in the backyard waiting for the sun to come up so they can head out for a day of scratching and worm hunting.
I will be inside for a little while doing a bit of printing on some tea towels and calico bags for the Daylesford Makers Market on 6th November. The weather helps a little bit though as things dry fairly quickly...
Here is my nes squeegee (probably the wrong spelling) My last one split in the centre, either from old age or abusive treatment by me.

Hopefully the screen won't dry out too quickly today which can happen in nice weather. The print (below) was inspired by an old Deco postcard of Daylesford that my friend Beck showed me. This area was popular in the 1920's / 30's because of all the natural springs etc, so we have some beautiful deco buildings around the place to inspire us. Anyway, less talk and more action! Have fun in your creative space today!
