MITOGRAPHIE by Witts Design
On Saturday 10th February 2018, screen printing specialists mother and daughter Michelle and Stephanie Witts opened their first shop MITOGRPAHIE by Witts Design in Holt, North Norfolk.
The opening of the shop comes just a few years after the pair studied Textile Design together at London Metropolitan University. Stephanie worked in the same studio as mum Michelle after transferring from Loughborough University for her final year.
Stephanie said: "I never once thought I'd end up working with mum but when we were studying together our tutors encouraged us to work in partnership, so we decided to give it a go - and here we are opening our first ever shop together!"
Lady Jan Harper who officially opened the shop, has always had a passion for textiles after being trained as an amateur seamstress by her grandmother - who worked alongside royal designer, Normal Hartnell - saying:
"I am delighted to see the art of screen-printing is making a comeback to my home country. Norwich's heritage owes much to the textile industry which thrived for five centuries, making the city the second most important in the country."
MITOGRAPHIE is a play on words for the ancient craft of screen printing 'Mitography' (Mito meaning threads of fibre and graphien meaning to write or to print.)
Witts Design would like to thank everyone who attended on Saturday 10th February 2018, it means so much to Michelle and Stephanie that you came along to see our humble beginnings. It was also an honour to have Lady Jan Harper perform the official opening of MITOGRAPHIE.
