I am delighted to be selling one of my new cushions in my Loakes Design with Edition London.
These are some photos from a recent workshop at Daylesford Organic Farm in the Cotswolds. I will be running other workshops on....
Sunday 12th November 2017 - Daylesford Organic Farm, Kingsley
Wednesday 29th October 2017 - Daylesford Organic, Notting Hill, London.
This workshop gives you a chance to play with pattern and learn the essential techniques for block printing onto fabric, guided by the talented Louisa Loakes.
You will create your own design using simple line forms and shapes. Once this is perfected, you will learn how to cut a linoleum block to transfer your design onto natural linen fabric and create an eye-catching pattern.
At the end of the session, you will have made your very own hand-printed linen cushion cover to take home.
All course materials will be provided and light refreshments will be available throughout the day. Lunch is not provided, but you may bring your own or visit the Daylesford farmshop.
I feel very lucky to have been invited by The New Craftsman to contribute to their wonderful VIP area at Decorex last week. The area was a beautiful arrangement of the most wonderful crafts from all over the British isles. The baskets were the talk of the town - a collection of all different basket from over the UK, all with different uses and different hands that had made them. The Cherry Daybeds a collaboration between myself and Artist William Waterhouse were on show for the first time. They are soon to be available at The New Craftsman.
I had my own cozy area were I could print away all day...
Thank you The New Craftsman for a very lovely day.
Last weekend we opened the door to our home inviting people to see our exhibition Starch and Hedgehogs as part of the Nunhead Art Trail 2015.
