For Helen Rawlinson each open studios at the Chocolate Factory is a mad panic of tidying up and pulling it all together at the last minute, whilst keeping up with orders for her lampshades and screen printed textiles sold through various online stores. There’s always a run of tea towels in new colourways on the go and a first peek at new designs in the making.
Kids are always welcome in the toy corner and can get creative with colouring in their own designs. This summer will see an array of new tea towel totes – (look out for the free tutorial coming up on her blog) plus there will be samples and seconds of all of her range up for grabs. Here’s to a busy fortnight ahead!
Helen Rawlinson has been working from her Chocolate Factory Studio in F5 since 1995.
