• The Crafting Genius of the Yellow Owl Workshop

    June 16, 2012 • Living

    I came across the San Francisco based Yellow Owl Workshop whilst in California last year and was immediately impressed by their eclectic range of crafty products. Christine Schmidt heads the operation alongside her husband and they have slowly but steadily been catching attention of printing enthusiasts worldwide. Every article which leaves the workshop is handmade and is created using non-toxic water-based inks and 100% PCW recycled paper. Their beautiful scenic stamp sets are the things that first caught my attention and are really rather wonderful. The fantastic thing about the workshop is that it inspires you to use their creations as a jumping off point for your own projects which Christine’s Print workshop book provides further templates and ideas for. Her screen printed cards, invitations and stationary are also work a look – the Yellow Owl Workshop blog is a good place to begin exploration.
