This turtle design has been with me a long time. I designed it while taking a screen printing workshop, showing Aboriginal women in South Australia how to print fabric. I later added the background as a lino print, and layered colour before screening the turtles over the top. It was a very laborious exercise! While the background lacks the texture of the original print, I'm excited about being able to print a quantity of this fabric without it taking two days to do so! (I would have printed and scanned the background but my lino blocks took an unaccompanied walk a few years back and have never been seen again...)
The gold and bronze colours of the turtles in this design print beautifully (at least in the 'old' profile - I hope this will maintain in the conversion... swatches on order soon).
