This week an order of gorgeous hand printed cotton tape and fabric arrived from Jesse Breytenbach, a printmaker from South Africa. All of the things in the package are beautiful. The red scissors hand printed cotton tape is the inspiration for this linocut project.
I've made a linocut of a Singer Sewing Machine similar to one that sat in our bike shed when I was a little. Usually black ink feels a bit "heavy" for my style of linocuts, but for this one it reminds me of the heavy black metal base frame and broad pedal of the machine. After a few more trial runs on paper I'm aiming to try printing with it on fabric.
