Not usual for me to hit you up on a weekend, but i went to this fantastic place today in Leeds.
‘On The Wall’ it is an art gallery, picture framing studio and a shop where you can buy genius screen printed piece, spray painted works and painted canvases.
My favorite pice was a Michel Jackson screen printed parchment paper in black and the shadows highlighting his hair were different images of him in white! the composition was simple as was the black and white colour scheme. This work was not framed or on a canvas so you could easily ick up a piece and buy your own frame.
I also really liked the painted spiderman defeating the green goblin on a A1 canvas colourful and painted with an appreciation of the cartoon 🙂
Check it out next time you’re in Leeds,

Hi guys two major huge things on today’s agenda…
1 From exhibiting at New Designers I have made some useful contacts and one of them is craft central. The network benefits include: affordable workspaces, insightful business training, showcasing opportunities, gallery/exhibition facilities, regular e-newsletters packed with relevant opportunities, discounts on a variety of handy services, a page on our popular website, networking opportunities, and lots more… all at heavily subsidised rates! More information can be found here http://www.craftcentral.org.uk/network . This is a really useful network to be apart of and only costs £ 100.00 for the year and a lot of the oppertunites brought to you by them are subsided so you always get a really good price! I would suggest this to anyone who has been a designer maker for some time or any recent graduates who would like to go freelance and even for anyone who just wants to get their work and name out there.
2 HABITAT IS CLOSING DOWN! Right now there are crazy sales on at Habitat up 90% off products which you can do the math on! A shame such a fantastic brad has gone onto adminstration farewell Habitat…
Okays so it’s that time of year when we are all searching for good holiday deals, whether it is to get away on a cheeky 3 day city break, rent a cottage in the Cotswolds for a week or book a cruise in the med!
Whilst looking fir holidays today and inspiration on interior design I found this fantastic luxury apartment in New York on the trendland newsletter.
I think the layout is modern and clean-cut, elegantly dressed with a strong use of natural light from full the ceiling to floor windows and the luxury fabrics which shimmer in all lights.
Check it out… If I had the money I would, wouldn’t you?
Dietz Lantern Building in Tribeca, New York City
Located in the Dietz Lantern Building in Tribeca, New York City. This one-of-a-kind luxury duplex penthouse occupies the building’s entire top two floors with five bedroom and five and a half bathroom. Offering amazing east, west, north, and south views of the city, the terrace with its gorgeous lap swimming pool really makes this penthouse so unique!
Not that I’m in love with the
ugly furniture, this Trendhome review is all about the apartment, the pool/terrace and the location, location, location (429 Greenwich Street)! If you have an extra $22 Million, its yours!

Oh my goodness have I got a story to tell…
I have finally left university and awaiting results, I have exhibited at Bradford College and been to London, and exhibited at the Business Centre in Islington at, New Designers.
The exhibition at Bradford was very successful with lots of comments about my fantastic use of colour and texture. My upholstered chair went down a treat and I have had offers for £600.00 🙂 which is amazing as it is a one-off designer piece of furniture.
My fabric lengths I was very pleased with, but from exhibiting it is very apparent to me that they are aimed at people looking for specific lengths in specific designs, and it seems that the buyer would ultimately have a flair for textiles and some understanding about the processes used; making them more willing to pay more than you would for an average throw as they understand the concepts and hard work behind the one-off designs.
London was so crazy, set off to victoria at 6a.m did not arrive until 12.15 the same afternoon! Had a mad rush to get to the hotel drop our things off and then get to the Business Centre to help unpack the van for 1p.m did not happen! Haha did not arrive until 2p.m pople were not impressed but what can you do, was no fault of our own. The rest of Monday and all of Tuesday were set up days and Wednesday was the opening day.
A fantastic but long say I had interest from the Worshipful weavers institute but unfortunately did not win the award, the designer who won was Laura Daley and her hand woven piece was amazing and she did deserve to win! Check out her portfolio on Arts Thread.com, my portfolio is also on there ‘Ravinder Budwal’ check out my work and let me know what you think. Thursday, Friday and Saturday were all busy days. All I can say is it is super important to speak to anyone and everyone about your work and other people’s in your group, as exhibiting is all about networking, meeting people and getting their contact details.
I will now upload photographs of my final collection and some drawing pieces which has contributed towards the final collection!
Watch out for those….
P.S if your in London over the summer 2 places to hit up for food ‘Giraffe’ which are all over London and for dessert Krispy Kreams!! YUM!
Currently looking for a full-time job within the textiles field… Wish me luck…
