This week, I have been helping out at the wonderful Nottingham Trent University. On Tuesday, I helped out with the 3rd years tutorials as they approach the end of the course. So many amazing ideas bouncing around. I absolutely love working at a University and being part of the student's learning. On Wednesday, I hosted my penultimate screenprinting workshop of the academic year. Then, on Thursday it was back to the studio for more tutorials - this time with the second year. In one of the spaces in the Uni was this huge blackboard, pictured above, where students had scribbled their dreams and hopes that they wanted to achieve 'before they die' - really fun to read while having a tea break!
In other news: I had been worried that without clear washing instructions on my hand-made pillows the print might be compromised. When I send out an etsy order I always write a note with care instructions for the products, but I thought I would design some little cards that I will hang from the labels of my cushions so that it is perfectly clear! It's also a nice piece of unique branding to add to the product. Maybe people will keep the cards forever too! :-)
I have also set up a Pintrest! (I know, I know - another distraction, hey?!) I am to be believed that it will be very useful, inspiring and helpful to my work. I am probably going to feel really late to the party - but if you like, my profile is here. Let's link up! I will be adding to it tonight.
