I was struck by the boldness of the work and the heavy application of ink. Most of the designs were black and white. They applied a lighter touch to the ceramics and some of the textiles, incorporating botanical and marine illustrations. It's really quite a contrast to the 50's style I am familiar with and they weren't commercially successful which is probably why I had never heard of their collaboration. The exhibition which is free runs until March 3rd. If you go at the weekend you'll no doubt also see a large group of emo teenagers hanging out there las they obviously have nowhere else to go in Colchester town (my sister said she saw them there a few weeks earlier too!).
