Celia Birtwell's Artisan Printers

This video shows some amazing printing by one of England's last remaining Artisan Printers for the textile designer Celia Birtwell. I would love to spend some time in there watching them print:

Lovely to see her doing some designing, and they seemed to be having so much fun.

Thank you for your comment Sandra -I really enjoy seeing the processes that people go through - and usually it involves a lot of work.
They do look as if they are having fun - is it hot in there as one of them has his shirt off, or does he get so messy that he finds it easier than wearing an overall? ;-)
