IT IS DECEMBER! No.... honestly,.... I promise. Yep, the December at the end of the year. Yes, yes I know.
For us in the studio and workshop, it has meant lots of mince pie eating (as of November he 27th) and all sorts of other indulgent activities - citing 'the season as the reason' every time.
One of the events that kicked off the month for us was a workshop that we ran at the Turner Contemporary for their Christmas 'Late Night Live' on the 30th November. We brought along a load of specially made wooden disks and showed everyone how to screen print them to make baubles and decorations. A great night! We even made a tree for the occasion, from scrap wood of course.
The other seasonal thing we've been getting into is of course printing our yearly Christmas card! I liked 2012's design so much that we've decided to produce it as larger size in a limited edition fine art print.
We have hand screen printed 'Winter Sun' as a run of 100 copies only, using black and metallic gold acrylic ink on high quality art paper. Each print is signed and edition numbered, with a letter of authenticity, and presented in a smart cellophane sleeve with recycled mount board back.
Stop in to the shop if you would like to pick one up for £35, and have a lovely December everyone!
