home: event [ wrapping paper printing ]
Learn to create your own wrapping paper designs and bring a unique edge to your Christmas gifts this year.
This Christmas Wrapping Paper Workshop with Hato Press is on Wednesday 11th December.
Learn about riso-printing, mark-making and collage techniques
Take home 10 sheets of Riso printed wrapping paper of your own design
Complimentary mulled wine and mince pies included
The festive season is nearly upon us, and with it comes the unavoidable seasonal insanity; Christmas CDs on loop, bearded men inviting you to sit on their knee, unnecessary amounts of tinsel, and industrial presses methodically churning out packs of generic greetings cards. Not at Hato HQ. We’re encouraging you to get personal this yuletide with some creative wrapping paper making to share with your nearest and dearest. Using a mixture of collage and mark-making techniques, you will create 10 sheets of A3 wrapping paper, printed in 2 colours on our risograph printers.
home: found this [ Jonathan Adler x H&M ]
Next week sees the launch of H&M’s first ever homeware designer collaboration and its a good one. They have teamed up with Jonathan Adler, known for his maximalist style and decorative ceramics.
This collection oozes fun and style with bold colours and pattern and quirky touches including a blanket with ‘naughty’ and ‘nice’ on and illustrated vases with men & womens faces.
The collection launches in selected stores on 14th November. If you are in Regent St, London and a rewards member you will get the chance to meet Jonathan Adler and get a free gift on the day.
Head to hm.com for more info and the teaser video. Prices have not yet been released.
home: trend [ stripes ]
Stripes are in and out of favour continually and currently we see them with both a natural feel in linens, natural colours and soft tones, but also in bolder starker contrasting tones that make a statement within an interior.
Not a pattern to clash with varying stripes on different homewares but great clashing with florals or bold block colour prints.
