Joining the slaves at the opening nights of 2 BSSTC plays!

Back home in the Netherlands I've never ever been to theatre, so when I came here and Ella offered me a ticket to the opening night of a BSSTC play (Black Swan State Theatre Company, which is by the way a fabulously beautiful building, absolutely gorgeous!) it was an all new experience! Meanwhile I've seen 2 of ...

New Tiki Tees for the King’s Slaves

Next Back

You can't be seen just wearing any old thing on Tiki Island, uh-uh. The King simply would not have it.

It became apparent recently that some new Red TIki threads would not go astray. While our previous tees have been good to us, we've realised a few things. Firstly, slaves can never have too many colours. Secondly, more colours equals good colours. Thirdly, it is inappropriate for slaves to don only strategically-placed coconut shells. Ninthly, slaves have both fronts AND backs. (Thanks to the Red Tiki King for gentle prompts regarding both points three and ...

Tiki Showcase at Outré Gallery

Next Back

Any chance to drink some delicious Sailor Jerry Rum, look at sweet tiki art, mingle with hip guys and gals and drink even more rum and the Red Tiki slaves are there! So when we heard that all these things were happening in the one place we jumped at the chance to go along to the Tiki Showcase at Outré Gallery.

 
The gallery was buzzing from the minute we walked in until the end of the night (when the rum barrels ran dry). The showcased tiki art, sculptures and mugs saw a return to tradition, focusing on amazing handcrafted items which appeal to the most ...

Getting Tactile with Letterpress

Next Back

The Red Tiki slaves were thrilled to get a very up-close-and-personal look at some letterpress and specialty finishing techniques, thanks to the friendly crew at Pilpel Print. We have always had an undeniable affection for the craft of letterpress, and never miss any opportunity to lovingly stroke some paper!

Grinning like proud parents, we got to witness some beautiful old Heidelbergs whirring into action, churning out flawless foiling and embossing. The sights! The smells! The lovely results that came straight off the press and into our adoring hands! We were ...
