A ribbon of Bath houses

Inspired by the long rows of Georgian houses snaking up the Bath hillsides, this screen print is printed on to  acid free watercolour paper, which gives it a bit of texture:

Here are some giclee prints of these screen prints. I tried lots of different colours, and couldn’t decide which I liked best! I’ll be putting these in my Etsy shop (as soon as I take some better pictures of them)

Long time no post!

Many apologies for not having posted for so long! I’ve been working on lots of new stuff, and being a relative newbie to blogging, I find it so much quicker to post on instagram (@blockhousebath). I’m going to try to post more regularly on here now, so perhaps that will speed me up a bit!

Here’s a picture of one of the new doorstops with hand screen printed house and handles. I wanted the pattern on the handles to echo some of the details on the houses, and I also used the same delicious green colour. Permaset printing inks are so good to use, and look beautiful when printed onto cotton canvas (Permaset available from Handprinted or Hunt the Moon).

And here’s a make up bag in the same fabric. I just used hand-cut paper stencils to screen print these. Putting in zips has been a steep learning curve! As you can see in the doorstop above, I’ve  put zips in these too, so that they’re a lot more postable, and customers can add their own rice (2kg for about 80p in Lidl when I last looked!
