In the Print Lab

Thermochromic-fabric-5-by-Marie-LedendalThis and last week have had lots of days in the print lab – and I love it! I really enjoy entering that almost meditative colour-mixing state, when your are printing new samples. All you need to focus on are; colours, tints and shades. I can see what goes well with what, what expressions in the colour change I want to create – a subtle and calm one or bold and dramatic one.

I have been printing materials for my ‘Smart Textillek för Små’ (‘Smart Textile Play for Wee Ones’) workshop that I will run at a nursery next week, were 3-5 year will have a go at playing and experimenting with creating patterns through colour change using heat, cold as well as sunlight. I hope they will enjoy it as much as I will.
Cheers!
