The Tigerprint team had a great time at New Designers and we spoke to loads of talented graduates. If you visited the Tigerprint stand at the show you may have seen us running daily workshops. As a thank you to all of the designers who took part in the workshops we will be posting a designer profile as a thank you for taking part. The profiles will be posted over the next few weeks so keep an eye out.

Jane Farnham is a freelance surface pattern designer and maker of things, creating patterns for anything that needs a surface design.
"I have always been obsessed with colour and repeat patterns for as
long as I can remember. I use a mixture of line drawings and doodles
along with computer illustration to create my work. I take a lot of my
inspiration from nature, old china and fabrics and am often found
looking around charity shops, antique markets or our local park, taking
photographs of any & everything that interests me. I also love
bringing old furniture back to life, sewing all sorts of things and
drinking lots of tea".
