The Little Press

For our second Brush Lettering Workshop, we got in touch with a beautiful creative friend that we've known since the early days of The Little Press. Chantelle is a talented designer, with a delicate bohemian style full of warm earthy colours and natural textures. Her styling for the workshop include a stunning wall hanging with handmade cotton tassells, wild foliage for the table, and a hand block printed table runner made from recycled paper and our indian hand carved wooden blocks in gold ink. We love the moody vibes from these shots!

Moving into the "Dream Studio" space, we could finally host workshops in printmaking, have exhibitions and opening nights - and create a community with people who are passionate about paper and wanderlust ideas.

We host a range of printmaking workshops in letterpress (modern and traditional) as well as screen printing and traditional block printing. These are all very hands on, getting inky fingers producing prints - aprons are highly recommended! We wanted to do something a little more dreamy, host a workshop where we all can chat away and drink tea while learning a new skill - something less messy. Since my watercolour hand lettering has become a popular add-on for envelope addressing and place tags, I thought this would make the perfect workshop. I also use a very handy watercolour brush pen, which I wanted to share with everyone, as I find it's a great tool for beginners.

A few months ago, we contacted Floral Army - two beautiful florists who's floral designs are always an incredible combination of colours and wild elegance - and asked if they could help us make the space beautiful! 

And so the Brush Lettering Workshop # 1 was created! 

We were so lucky to have Kirsty Russell attend the workshop - a talented Perth photographer who brought along her camera to capture the moments and mood. Check out Kirsty's website for some beautiful, light filled wedding photography and portraits.
