I must be completely bonkers but I have got two markets this weekend and they both are from past experience very busy !
I was meant to be only at The Market on Sunday but I got a phone call tonight saying that someone had pulled out at the last minute and that there was an outside stall available at The Barn market at Rosny if I wanted it! after much thinking and considering family I decided to take it up.
I really like The Barn market and I really like being outside in the gazebo the last market I did was outside and it was fantastic with all the fresh air and sunshine, so my kids and I will be up at the crack of dawn and off to market first thing tomorrow morning.
The other Market on Sunday is The Market at the Masonic Hall in Sandy bay road,
I am really excited about being back at this Market, I haven't had a stall there since the Christmas market last December and to be back on their 1st Birthday is really something special. To mark the occassion they will be opening up the upstairs rooms to fit more stall holders for you to check out and buy lovely things from and they will be having a lucky door prize of items dontated by stall holders there that day, now that really is a reason to come along and celebrate.
So if you love Handmade and Markets you have your weekend well and truely filled up if you decide to check these two fantastic markets out .
Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking
Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing
The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine
I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested
