Wild Terrain

It has been a while since I’ve done a print run on my mega table! And, this fabric below is the result of my latest print run. Wild Terrain

With this organic fabric I will be making maxi skirts! Yay! I love maxi skirts, they don’t suit me but I love them regardless! I’d like to tell you a little bit about this design.

The design was drawn by my son when he was 6 years old and when he showed me I fell in love with it straight away.  It was this drawing that led my son to become the youngest print maker at Green Door Studio and the youngest person to enter the International Print Exchange (IPE).

When your child draws there is so much information behind the little squiggly lines and marks. Just sit down and ask your child to tell you all about their drawing and they will tell you tales, wonderful tales! Tales of mythical lands featuring those that they love.

Each drawing is so precious, yet as the papers pile up it becomes frustrating! A friend once said that her father used to write on the back of her childhood drawings of very simple squiggles, each drawing produced an elaborate story of fantasy. As she looks back on them now, she can’t see the story in the squiggles but it shows that a child’s mind is a highly intelligent and complex one. Their vision knows no bounds!

So here’s an idea… create a little (or big!) book of your children’s drawings and tales. Stick their drawing into the book on one leaf and on the other write the story.
