About the Event
In this small group workshop we will be exploring fabric printing using a range of techniques including lino blocks and stenciling.
During the workshop you will print your own tote bag or tea towel - working through your design and placement of the blocks to create your own personal item.
It will be fun! And at the end you will have a unique item to keep or give away.
This course is suitable for anyone over 16 years of age who wants to get a bit inky!
This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes and have fun learning how to continue these traditional crafts. Other workshops are scheduled in felting, shibori and boro stitching.
No experience needed.
