In this workshop you will learn how to print with lino and wood blocks onto fabric.  There will also be a demonstration of how to make your own blocks and an opportunity to cut one to your own design.

You will then handprint your own selection of designs and colours onto some test pieces of fabric.  Once you have had a bit of practice you can then choose to print onto two of the following:  tea towels, aprons, or bags (extra items available at a small extra cost). You are welcome to bring along any items that you would like to print onto, such as t-shirts. napkins, cushion covers etc or print onto loose fabric that can be made into cushions covers, scarves, clothes etc. The fabric does however need to be a natural rather than man-made material as this takes the ink more effectively.

All of the printing will need to be ironed which will make it permanent and washable.

Many of these will make wonderful presents for Christmas.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. There will be an information sheet of where to source the materials that you need to be able to continue to print at home.

Refreshments. Lunch, tea &coffee and homemade cake are provided.

Course materials. All materials are included.

What to bring. Wear old clothes. Apron
