Linocut and Letterpress; a blog about life at Cardabelle Design

By Kate Guy 16 Jun, 2017
After my unplanned extended stay in the South of France my summer season belatedly kicks off this weekend with the fabulous Wimbledon Village Fair. Spread across the South side of Wimbledon common it is one of London's biggest free outdoor events. With everything from jousting to a dog show, delicious food stalls and of course a whole shopping village of interesting stalls.

Unfortunately I have to cancel my markets this weekend (Primrose Hill and Highgate) as my car broke down the day before I was due to drive home from Cardabelle headquarters in the South of France.

 Although I am sad to miss my markets and I hope no one was banking on seeing me this weekend, there really are worse places to be stuck.
It could have been worse - we could have broken down on the motorway on the way home, someone could have been hurt - no real damage and this is the view from my studio today, I am feeling lucky.

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. 

The ethos for my business is inspired by my hero; William Morris whose vision was to link art to industry by applying the values of fine art to the production of commercial design, he was a key figure in the evolution of design as we know it today.

William Morris was an artist, designer, printer, typographer, bookbinder, craftsman, poet, writer and champion of socialist ideals. (Busy guy!)
