Meet the Maker - The Lapwing Printworks

Today we are featuring Jon and Sarah of The Lapwing Printworks. The couple who are based in Norwich make very unique hand pulled prints, lino cuts, wood cuts and wood engravings.

They have also recently branched out into letterpress and so now sell stationery too.

"We've always been interested in printmaking but it was only when we moved in together that we had the space to start creating our own prints." says Jon, "We sell our work online in our Etsy and Folksy shops and our website allows us to take on commissions. "

"What we love most about our work is first glimpse of a new print when the paper is first peeled back – after several hours planning and carefully cutting the image, it's very exciting to see the first proof!" says Sarah.

"In the future we'd like to do more collaborative prints together, as well as expanding our range of letterpress stationery."
