Frequently asked questions:

About printing and learning to print:

What kind of printing technique do you use?

I use both stencil printing and screen printing techniques and a combination of both. I mostly love techniques that can be done with simple equipment at home and without the use of chemicals.

 

What kind of ink/fabric/stencil material do you use?

I have described the materials I use in my first blog post as well as in my online Skillshare class. You can refer to these for information.

 

Can I do a workshop with you?

I love to teach printing workshops, however because of corona I  currently limit my teaching to online teaching. You can find my first course at Skillshare. The second one will follow soon. To get a taste of what you can learn you can refer to my different blogs on printing techniques.

About buying fabric:

Can I buy your printed fabric? And do you sell yardage?

Yes I offer hand handprinted fabrics on this gallery of my website. I cannot at present sell yardage. My printing technique is very labor intensive, therefore I only offer panels of handprinted fabric that can be used for projects like bags, pouches, cushions and small garments. If you buy several panels you will of course get them in one piece.

 

Is the fabric washable?

Yes all prints are heat set and can be washed. I recommend a cold machine wash or hand wash. Washing your fabrics in this way will preserve the life of the print. You can iron your fabrics putting a thin cloth between the print and your iron. All fabrics I print have been pre washed cold before printing.

 

Can I use your fabrics for upholstery?I can print on fabrics that are suitable for upholstery. Fabrics that are handprinted may be more sensitive to wear and tear industrially printed fabrics.  They will probably age a little more with use, however the prints hold well enough on items like bags and cushions.  Also my fabrics have not been chemically treated to be stain resistant, but you can always do that yourself if you want to.

Can you print different colours to those shown in the gallery?

Yes that is possible, there will be an extra charge for mixing and testing new colours, get in touch with me to get a quote.

 

Can I order sample swatches?

Yes you can, swatches are available for 5 euro’s per swatch plus shipping costs.

 

Can I order a print I’ve seen (on website or Instagram) that is not in the gallery?

In most cases I will be able to reproduce an earlier print that is not currently listed. Just send me a picture (or screenshot) of the print you are interested in.

 

What fabrics do you print on?

I print on natural fabrics, either linen or biological (GOTS certified) cotton. I most often work on mid weight fabrics,  but depending on the use of the fabric I can choose heavier or lighter fabrics.

 

Are your products sustainable?

You can find a description here of my approach to sustainability.

 

How can I pay?

Can I order products in bespoke prints and colours?

Yes you can. I will be making a special page to make this process easier. For now you can send me a message through the contact page of this website and we can discuss what you would like.

 

Can you customise a product for a person?

I can add the initials of the person the product is meant for, for example in the lining of a bag or pouch.

 

How can I pay?
