Print a tea towel – Saturday 7th April
Print Your Own Tea Towel with Gillian from Fabric Nation. We provide all the materials, including pure cotton tea towels, fabric inks and for inspiration, our collection of vintage tea towels and textile design books. With our tuition and top tips you will design and cut your own lino block and print up a tea towel, all handmade by you in Tooting! We use a soft lino which is much easier to cut than the traditional lino you might remember from your school days. All inks are washable and non-toxic, but do bring a pinny in case of inky stains. The inks are fixed by ironing, so your finished tea towel can be used and washed. That’s if you don’t plan to frame your work of art!
The workshop is open 2pm to 5pm at the Tooting Tram & Social and costs £15 per person. Price also includes homemade cakes, you just need to bring extra beer money! This workshop is suitable for adults and children from age 8 with help from a parent or carer. No previous experience is needed.
These are some of the tea towels made by people printing for the first time.
Places cost £15 per person. To ask about booking a place, please email Gillian,
