Orchard for Rural Media 'Life Loves to Change'

Last summer I was asked to produce a piece of printmaking for the Rural Media Company's film 'Life Loves to Change'.   I was commissioned to produce a lino-print and a length of fabric based on a generic impression of a Herefordshire orchard.  

So, I went from the brief and produced a tree that stood with it's root on view and repeated it across the fabric so that it could be filmed with apples being embroidered onto the surface.  I had not printed Lino onto fabric and used a repeat before and it was great fun.  It was all a bit 'Heath Robinson' working on the kitchen table and burnishing the back of the Lino with a wooden spoon.  I was delighted with the result, as were the Rural Media Company.
