They’ve signed a lease, moved into a studio, and started purchasing equipment, but still on the shopping list are such big ticket items as a roof-mounted pulley-rigging system and a darkroom system.

So they've taken to PledgeMe to raise $5,000 for their large scale set up, and are over halfway to reaching the goal.

Pledges are eligible to receive rewards in the form of Rust & Stardust homewares, which stand out for their hand-drawn images, pops of colour and bold geometric patterns.

As well as printing, sewing, packaging, photography and all the rest, the Rust & Stardust duo also plan to hold workshops, studio days and exhibitions.
