By attending WIA’s International Workshop/Tech Tour you’ll have numerous opportunities to experience some of the best wallcovering products available, and be able to ask in-depth questions about them to their creators.

The first tour scheduled for this trip is to the factory of Lewis & Wood. Lewis & Wood has created a substantial collection of textiles and wallpapers, largely manufactured in Britain. The success of the company lies in its determination to be different.

The commitment to produce original products starts in their screen printing studio, where creative director, Magdalen Jebb collaborates with a variety of freelance designers, from different disciplines to encourage an original approach. They then work with weavers, dyers, printers and finishers to try new techniques. This isn’t always easy, but it does make the result a lot more interesting. Discover more about this amazing company online at http://ow.ly/8aYq3083huj : www.lewisandwood.co.uk

This is a 2016 Craftsmanship Award recipient

The entry form for the 2017 Craftsmanship Awards is on the WIA website

Dining Room Mural

This project involved hanging a square mural in a crooked space. The mural consisted of boxes that were measured and submitted. A miniature was sent back with the wrong measurements. Although the installer sent back changes for the original measurements, they were never corrected and the wrong full sized mural was sent. Finding the walls were crooked added to the challenge. There were beams on each wall that differed in size but the same sized pieces were sent for all walls. Larry cut strips and re-hung them, cheated and glued back lines to make the mural work and in the end made a crooked space look square!
