Fifa Cafe - Screen Printing Workshop

Katie WalshComment

Fika Cafe in Kensington Market hosted our screen printing basic workshop. We had so much fun teaching techiniques and getting to know everyone who attended.

We will be planning an extended version on screen printing from building screens to setting up a home studio.

Pop Up Printing!

Katie WalshComment

Join us for a fun filled afternoon at The Drake General Store Saturday April 8th 1-4pm

We will be hosting a small workshop getting people inspired to print.

If your just passing by or maybe you and friends want to learn something fun, quick and easy to do then this is the workshop to get your creativity flowing!

For $25 you will get to customise one canvas tote bag and one standard paper print for your wall.

We have taken care of all the hard work all you have to do is print! We have pre-made all the screens with various patterns and slogans to choose from. We have lots of inks and will show you how to get a good print!

Once printed, your artwork will need to dry we suggest if you are continuing to shop to leave it with us to pick up at a later date or take it straight home and lay it flat on clean surface to dry for approx 30min-1hour.

Of course they may be lots of people eager to try out printing however it is first come first served or if we are so lucky to sell out of the tote bags.

We hope to see you there!

Bellwoods Flea Market 2/21/15

Katie WalshComment

What an amazing experience to be involved in! The opportunity to meet some many new people and to get Octavia's name and products out there was a great experience! The Magpie Taproom was a fab host to some lovely artisans! Every vendor was very welcoming and supportive with Octavia's first Flea market!

Can not thank Felicia and Justin enough for the opportunity to be apart of the Bellwoods Flea! Octavia had a successful day! We learnt a huge amount from our customers and of course we had such good fun!

We have lots of new product ideas from our lovely customers suggestions coming soon! We cannot wait to be involved with the next flea opportunity!

OCTAVIA PROJECT

From pouches to tote bags Octavia Project is something you would find at the Spacing store at 401 Richmond. This brand is very Toronto centric with a majority of their products featuring our favourite organization we love to hate, the TTC. With tote bags featuring our favourite station names to a pouch that perfectly represented the Spadina station tiles; these silk screened items are something every Toronto enthusiast should have. In addition to our beloved TTC there were other bags/ pouches branded with Toronto street names and the welcoming gates at Trinity Bellwoods Queen St. entrance. They also had prints of bicycles and cows, but you know me my eyes weredrawn to the Toronto centric products – and the bicycles.
