I ordered two prints with custom text and they have a great look to them. I could see myself ordering additional prints in the future. Thanks!

About

A poet in a print shed!

I have always been a poet, and lucky enough to do lots of writing workshops with children, and writing for interesting projects, performing and sharing my love for poetry.

I love making things too - cards, and little books, and knitting and sewing.

I had been looking for different ways to publish my poetry for ages, and then when I built the shed in my garden, bought an Adana printing press and started to collect wooden and metal fonts of letters it became clear! The poetry packets were born, with lovely letterpress packets stitched together, and poems free range inside!

Printing is truly addictive, and I love experimenting with different fonts, and colours too.
When I am printing, the shed gets very messy, but everything has to be tidied up at the end of each session - the letters have to be in the right place!

There is so much more to learn, and so much more to share. Whether it's in the hot summer, with the doors open onto the garden, or in the winter all cosy and snug with the curtains drawn and the heater on, my print shed is the place I love to be!

    I am a poet, and love making poems for people to enjoy. I also love drawing, knitting, and printing with my letterpress machine. I work in the shed in my garden, helped by my two cats. Well, they think they are helping!
