Sarah & Ruth  We make limited edition prints, stationary & textiles, all screenprinted by hand in Bingley & Leeds.

Braved the wind and rain today, to visit Halifax and drop off some fresh stock at the beautiful @theyorkshiregallery ❤️ The Piece Hall looked as spectacular as ever, beams of sunshine lighting up the rain 🌧 🌞

And the winner is.... @sarahhanson33 🎉 Sarah takes beautiful pictures of hares and owls and all sorts of wild creatures so I think the leaping hare she chose will feel right at home 🐰 Thank you so much to everyone that commented on our giveaway post, we really have loved hearing all about which animals are your favourites and why 😍 We’ve got plans to add a few more animals to the collection, let us know if your favourite is missing :) 🦔 🐸 🦑

Thank you for all your lovely comments on our last post. It’s so great to hear which animals you like! And so far it seems every animal is someone’s favourite, which makes us happy (everyone should be someone’s favourite ❤️) Anyway, there’s still time to enter the giveaway, just take a look at our last post 👍

G I V E A W A Y ! To say thank you to all our lovely followers (over 1000 of you now!) and to brighten up the rapidly darkening nights (hello autumn 🍂) we’re going to give away one of our hand screenprinted birch panels! All you have to do to enter is:

- comment letting us know which one of our animal panels you would like to win!
This giveaway is open internationally and you can check out all the available designs in our shop if you don’t already have a favourite (link in profile👆) Winner will be picked at random on Friday 21st and announced here on Instagram. This giveaway is not affiliated with Instagram 👍

Prototyping some new pouch sizes today. Using up fabric test prints and misprints and old charity shop zips. It’s good to play around and see how things work out. Trying to get back into the swing of work after the long school holidays...

We’ve had some very exciting news today!

Drumroll Please!
We’d like to announce the over all winner of our Sponsorship Application.
With some amazing applications received it was not an easy decision and because of this we have decided to offer a number of additional awards, to be announced in full next week but for now, we’re delighted to select Sarah & Ruth from @folded_forest who’s work is beautiful, their sample tested variations on vibrancy in their colour palette, making us confident that we can represent their designs to the high standard we wish to work and their application was honest and lovely. We can’t wait to work with these two ladies, who will be using their sponsorship of help produce larger work for an exhibition that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to produce within the limitations of their current screen printing abilities.
Keep your eyes pealed for further announcements next week, we still have some juicy awards to make. •

Thanks again @befabbecreative 😊 We can’t wait to work with you!

Screen reclamation day today. Stripping off the old images and making way for some new... Sometimes this process works like a dream; the pressure washer wiping away the image in clean crisp lines, leaving fresh clean mesh behind. And sometimes the stencil is much more stubborn; needing multiple scrubs and leaving tiny blocked out bits which is very annoying indeed! Today there was only one pain-in-the-neck, and the sun dried the screens off beautifully, so all in all, a good day 🐋

Lovely visit to @craftleeds today to drop off some new stock. There’s so much good stuff in there! Beautiful ceramics by @rmalindesign and Jonathan Ashworth’s lovely wood cuts were among our favourites. All beautifully displayed and framed. So lucky to have this on our doorstep ❤️ And the great big beach outside today went down a treat too! Mmm donuts 🏝

Little walk in the woods this afternoon. Love the shape of these seed pods the kiddos picked up whilst wandering along, don’t think I’ve ever noticed them before. Turns out they’re from a Lime tree (also known as a Linden), going to try and find the tree next time to check out the leaves... 🍃

Back from the framers, one of our very first prints, three colour screenprint featuring all our favourite houseplants :) Also, check out the tiny flowers on the string of hearts! Never seen it flower before, must be enjoying all this sunshine 🌿

Sneaky peek of some new card designs in progress... Yet to finalise the colours, just working out the layers... 🌿

There’s a few new prints on wood in the shop too. Printed in white and dark grey ink on thick birch ply. We’re slowly building our collection of animals, which creature should we print next?? 🦓🦔🦑
