Lewis and Wood

Last week we were invited to visit Woodchester Mill, a magnificent building in the Stroud Valleys, and Home to the textiles company Lewis and Wood. We had a fabulous time including touring the Mill showroom and printing studio.

They have over 300 fabric blankets hanging 'Shaker' style from the walls, so we were able to get a good look at the designs and take them down and play around with different combinations. All their designs and colourways are on display including their fabulous signature Wide Width Wallpapers. Such fun!

Meeting the designers!
The absolute highlight was hearing from, and talking to, two of their talented designers about their inspiration - Adam Calkin, one of the UK's leading decorative painters and designer, illustrator and wood engraver Andrew Davidson.

So for our next couple of posts we thought we would showcase their work - we love it!
