Hand Printed Cushions
Hand printed cushions seem to me to be the perfect way to combine my artwork and interior design. I love being creative and am always looking for different skills to learn and master. I recently learnt how to screen print onto textiles. Velvet is such a tactile, beautiful fabric and seemed so fitting to print my paper cut designs onto to create cushions.
Using my own paper cut designs, I prepared the screens for hand printing. I am drawn to Purple, green and bright pink, so thought I would start by screen printing in these colours. I was absolutely delighted by the results. The velvet became embossed when I printed the fabric. As a Harrogate Artist I thought I would start with my Harrogate paper cut Map and my Paradise paper cut design images for these luxurious cushions.
I had the cushions made up by my neighbour Justin at BSpoke soft furnishing interior design in Harrogate. He did a fantastic job and I am absolutely thrilled with the end result.
My velvet hand printed cushions have proved very popular particularly as gifts. I suppose it is difficult to buy art for other people, but everyone probably needs a lovely cushion. You can never have enough cushions.
I am creating new cushion designs for Christmas. Pop into my art gallery and working studio in Harrogate to see them.
