This week I have mostly been printing a new design – an illustrated recipe for Welsh Cakes – at the Printhaus. I grew up with this recipe, as my mum used to bake around 100 or more Welsh cakes each week to sell at the WI market. Here it is as a screen print for the kitchen in bright, homely colours.
These will be on sale this Sunday at the Snapped Up market at the Printhaus in Cardiff. They will shortly be on sale in my online shop, and also on a new site called The Welsh Gift shop, set up by my good friend Becca to sell and celebrate Welsh artists, writers and crafts.
Here’s a poster for Snapped Up with all the details, do come along and say hi! I’m also looking forward to it, as a friend from America is sending a messenger bearing a delivery of quince (quinces?) from his mum’s house in Cardiff. Yum!
In other news I have two courses coming up at Cardiff Open Art School (Howard Gardens). These are in Book binding, on Saturday 20 October, and Festive lino / letterpress print making on Saturday 10 November. All details are on the COAS website – do have a look and come along!
I’ve been pretty active on Pinterest recently, collecting all sorts of delightful and unusual pictures. You can view my page here.
Finally, here’s a little visual story, of Lionel, The Marrow Who Became Jam. And what lovely jam it is (Marrow, Apple and Ginger, to be precise)
Next up: Blackberry Jam, or ‘Dead Good Jam’, made with berries courtesy of Cathays cemetery.
Have good weekends, all!
