Every year it’s a given that some new teatowels will be printed for the Festive Season. It’s also one of the ways I love to finish the year off. Whether it’s for customer orders or my own gifting, it signals winding down the studio for the holidays.
I love a wreath and so there’s usually at least one version. I’m also partial to stars so this year they both made an appearance in the 2020 tea towel printathon in the studio!
As always at the end of the year, time is always short and my favourite go-to is a stencil with one of my Lino blocks for some speedy printing.
A stencil is basically a flat surface (mine are usually paper) with cuts made into it leaving a design which then has ink applied over it, imprinting onto the material underneath.
Happy to say, after being heat set, washed and distributed these two tea towel designs were a big hit. Even happier that the year that was 2020 is now almost over!
