Start the New Year with your creative juices flowing by making some art for you home. We found this fun Risograph Image Making Workshop at Hato Press in London. Learn the techniques of riso-printing and collage in a 2.5 hr session.

We’ll take you behind the scenes at our printing studio, packed with different paper stock, riso drums and colourful ink tubes. As a group we will perform a test exercise on riso-printing and work through a few art production techniques. Then it’s time to experiment with your individual artwork using a range of materials, including our pre-made templates, inks, stamps, clippings, charcoal and many more. We will be on hand to give you advice and tips on your artwork, and then we’re off to the live printing action of your master creation!

Next workshop Jan 5th [ £45 ]

home: trend [ vanity units ]

Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.

It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.

Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.

When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.

Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.
