Mushroom wall calendar 2022, from watercolour paintings by Peter Thwaites
Dispatches from a small business in
Materials: robust watercolour paper, lightfast inks, spiral binding
Mushroom wall calendar 2022 printed from watercolour paintings by Peter Thwaites, a commissioned artist to the British Mycological Society.
The original paintings were scanned by his wife, Christine, at home on their own equipment. The separate image and date pages were then printed professionally and finally punched and finished with a white spiral binding back at home.
- Printed on robust white silk paper with the back and front covers slightly heavier.
- The image page and dates page are each printed in A4 size. The calendar is 16.5" tall when hung (two A4 pages in landscape format hang one above the other).
- Cello wrapped and sent in card-backed flat packing.
This is the 19th year we have produced a mushroom calendar from Peter's watercolour paintings. New paintings are produced each year although different paintings of the same species occur, according to whatever mushrooms were found and painted. That's a lot of different mushroom paintings. This year we have included several paintings of wild mushrooms found in our own piece of woodland not far from where we live in Cornwall in the far-west of England.
There is something extraordinary about mushrooms.
Last year the mushroom calendar was hugely popular resulting in two reprints. We really enjoy the busy-ness of sending out so many calendars each year - some requested with specially messaged gift cards and one asking if we could insert family birthdays and anniversaries for a special Christmas present. That's what makes Etsy a special market place as such contacts are instant and make selling our work so interesting.

This calendar is just lovely! The illustrations are so beautiful and detailed. Christine was so helpful with my questions & got it shipped out to me as quickly as she could! Great products & designs - would definitely buy from them again :) The only thing I do wish was that the paper for the calendar was just a liiiiittle bit thicker, but having slightly thinner paper does make it more lightweight, which is nice for wall hanging!
I am so thrilled with my mushroom calendar! It was a bit smaller than I expected but not enough to be a bother. Besides, the truly beautiful pictures are the star of the show!! Thank you so much for making this absolutely lovely calendar!!
