Titus Salt built Saltaire a mill and village near Shipley, this is now a world Heritage site and if you are coming north to Leeds or Bradford it’s well worth the visit. There is a permenant exhibition of David Hockney’s work – a Bradford lad, along with some great stores and an antique shop.
Titus died in 1876 and this is my tribute. All these items: the Prints, tea Towels and cards are available from a wonderful shop on the High Street just above the mill, called Radstudio – run by Gina
If you go to Saltaire take a trip up the high street as there are a number of interesting shops and cafes – even a pub called ‘Don’t tell Titus’ – he would be turning in his grave
Print, Tea Towel and card
I initially cut the Lino to make a series of open prints, then decided that it would make a nice Tea-Towel and finally a card.
Earlier for a local Saltaire makers fair I made a print of one of the lions – also available through Radstudio, the story goes that these were supposed to be the ones for Trafalgar Square, they now adorn Saltaire Town Hall, further up the High Street near Massarella’s Art Cafe – home to a number of my framed Rock Icon prints
