the stencil library

Over the last few weeks we have been frequent visitors to an amazing local business, The Stencil Library, who have kindly allowed us to use their incredible stencilled home for several product photo shoots. The resulting images have been so inspirational we’ve decided to share them in a special feature, focusing on surface pattern, colour and texture.

First, a little background...The Stencil Library design and manufacture decorative and signage stencils, sold through their web site www.stencil-library.co.uk and specialist retailers. Founded in 1988 by Helen Morris, their stencil collection is probably the largest in the world - a small company with a big reputation and a worldwide clientele. Helen also gives tours around her stencilled home at Stocksfield Hall and holds classes on various stencil related subjects.
