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!
