We've been in the studio making screens and setting up our own screen printing facilities. We had been using the facilities at Northern Print but a cost per session is required and so it makes sense to do everything from the studio.
Our application was accepted to trade at Armstrong Bridge Market in Jesmond. So preparations for our stall are going well. The market is held every Sunday from 10am til 4pm. The craft market gets very busy in the summer seasons and it offers a wide range of unique and interesting gifts and products.

Let's go deco!

Our latest collection  is heavily inspired by the art deco movement. We love the bold geometric compositions and block colours of art deco design. Although the movement began in the 1920's, art deco retains a modernistic look and aspects of this style can often be seen in many designs of today.

We are in the process of creating our brand and spreading the word of 'hinny' in the North East. After the success of the car park series we are about to start our T-shirt collection. We will be designing prints for lads and lasses which will be screen printed onto handmade T-shirts, all unique to the Hinny label.
