eye candy at the chocolate factory

1 Comment

I’ve long been intrigued by the Chocolate Factory N16 in Stoke Newington and was not going to miss the bi-annual open studios event the other day. I really fell for the combination of cosy cobbled yard, friendly community feel and range of creative work on offer (the great weather and chocolate Rice Krispie cakes were an added bonus). Not bad for a place to work!

Three of my favourites were Jo Davies’ salt and pepper pinch pots, Sarah Hyndman‘s graphic prints and Helen Rawlinson‘s screen printed tea towels.

As it happened, Helen Rawlinson ran the screen printing workshop I went to at the Make Lounge the other week (more of which coming up), so it was great to see her own prints in all their glory:

I was instantly drawn to Sarah Hyndman‘s bold, colourful Dalston- and seaside-inspired prints. She also has an interesting project on the go where anyone who would like to can design and submit a postcard (inspired by a random word) to her growing collection, which she will exhibit at Rich Mix this summer.
