A little something worth watching

A few weeks ago, I watched a BBC4 series on design which I found fascinating.  I also remember having a Twitter conversation about a particular programme in this series on wallpaper.  It took the viewer through the history of wallpaper, showing examples of wallpaper through the ages and also showed a clip of a lady called Marthe Armitage who makes hand printed wallpaper, printing from linoblocks.  Her work is truly inspiring; here’s a You Tube video for you to see what she does.  I hope you enjoy seeing her work and listening to her talking about it.  It’ll be 7 minutes well spent!

I wish I had a press like that!
