IN THE STUDIO
Kate Westcott hand-prints contemporary and striking images on linen in her studio near Bath. Her designs are printed on natural fabrics with environmentally friendly inks, creating a unique range of linen for the table and the home.
The designs originate from her own drawings and incorporate a mix of delicate, fine lined images with more bolder shapes and silhouettes from our English countryside and gardens.
Sometimes a print run will only produce 2 or 3 of a particular design, on a range of coloured linen. With larger items such as tablecloths, it may be that only one item is printed in a particular design/colour. If you see something that strikes you and you would like it in a different colour, do get in contact to see if it is possible.
All printed textiles in the For Sale section are washable and 100% cotton or linen.
Above the Cambridge Milk Parsley design (as included in the Cosy up with Colour feature of House & Garden) with the Great Tit & Apple Blossom and Blackbird designs on taupe linen with British sheep's wool or duck feather filled cushions. £42 - 45 each
Above, hand painted blackbirds on simple wooden trays. These are a new addition and can be usually seen for sale at fairs and The Little Christmas Pop-up Shop.
Set in a working studio, near Bath, these workshops will take you through the various stages of screen printing, from either transferring your own design onto a screen or using an already made screen, to mixing inks and printing.
This traditional method of screen printing is simple, hands-on and very rewarding!
RUSTIC LINEN APRONS
New this year, rustic linen aprons with Blackbird, Bee & Thistle and Cambridge Milk Parsley designs. Each apron has a front pocket and generous ties. The linen colour is taupe and the images are printed in green, sea green, white and deep pink.
