Celebrating the 38th Annual Lambeth Country Show

We all enjoyed printing our specially designed bags at the 38th Annual Lambeth Country Show. More than 200 young and old tried out hand printing and took away their own individually printed bag to show off their newly learned skills. Our grateful thanks to our print team over the two days, Florence, Jo, Catalina, Audrey and Liz who had just as much fun as visitors to our stand which supported Lambeth’s Cultivate area.
