I would love to create a small production run of fabric-say 50 meters. Small and affordable-this is almost impossible! (FYI: to print fabric with most printers you need to print a minimum of 1000 meters (1093 yards!). I know digital printing is possible but it is still very $expensive$. I am currently selling pillows that were digitally printed on Etsy and the pillows actually cost me more than what I am selling them for! I digress...
I received an email from a friend last week announcing a store opening she heard about. I just stopped by the opening not really knowing what to expect. I knew I found the place when I saw this from down the street.
Their workshops provide an ideal forum for designers and artists to cooperate and share novel ideas in the field of environmentally-friendly, socially-aware art.
Could this be the possible small run production set up I have been looking for? I don't think they can print yards of fabric but maybe they have future plans? maybe I can plant a seed in somone's head:)
When I walked inside to the opening I was so happy to see familiar equipment. I was hoping to talk to someone but it was so crowded! I have a gut feeling that this place is going to do well!
I plan to pop back into the gallery in the new year and hopefully learn more about what they offer. When I do I will let you know what I find out.
