Back in January during our trip to New Zealand, I was on a mission to acquire some local artwork for our apartment back in Zurich. Because we're not really at that "buying original paintings" stage of life yet, I had to look for cheaper and easier-to-transport alternatives.
I came across these tea towels in a design store. They are hand-screen-printed by artist Melina Martin from her original drawings and feature a range of native New Zealand birds and flora. I fell in love and decided to take them home and do "something" with them.
I stretched the tea towels over the canvas and secured them at the back with an upholstery gun. I managed on my own, but sometimes an extra pair of hands can be helpful to make sure you keep good tension as you go.
We're all enjoying having a little bit of New Zealand art on the walls, even if it's re-appropriated, kitchen-related media.
Update as at 11th August: I've found this great tea towel site:
