I said it before but I'll say it again: screen printing is awesome. Even more so when done live by such a talented artist as Daniel Heath, who demonstrated the technique using his new Lexington design, featuring large art deco windows.

The workshop was held at Top Drawer, and In The Window kindly invited some bloggers along to learn about Daniel's process of making his handmade wallpaper prints and to try it first hand.
In fact, that's exactly what In the Window is all about: connecting designers and makers with a community of design enthusiasts so that they can discover and experience not only the process, but also the story behind the finished products.

Seeing an artist at work is really something else, and being able to learn and ask questions about the design and making process was such a valuable experience. I definitely left the workshop way more inspired and motivated to make the dream of having my own little studio come true someday. A girl can dream, right?

Tasha also vlogged the event, so you can have a look at that too if you like ☺ (there's also lots of stationery eye candy in the video, so be prepared to be in awe).

If you could see anyone at work and learn from them, who would that be?
