I was nearly home from my run, slowing to a cool-down walking pace, when I stumbled across the beautiful printmaking studio of Maze & Vale yesterday morning.
Leslie Keating was lovely and welcoming and didn’t seem to mind a bit about my persistent questioning over screen-printing techniques (technical problems I had been experiencing with the Greeves St Project).
Leslie has been crafting for many years. First, in her country of origin, Canada, where she made leather journal covers, and now, in Australia, screen-printing and block printing onto fabric, which she sews into quilts, toys, and other projects. Her Scandinavian influenced fabrics have been hand printed onto sustainable natural materials and are available as panels or by the metre for crafters.
Maze and Vale is open tomorrow, Saturday the 29th of November, as part of Maribyrnong’s Open Studios event, which is running over this whole weekend.
