Spend a summer evening learning how to make a lino block and designing your own tea towel. With one-to-one tuition, you will design and cut your own lino block, learn different techniques and print up a tea towel.
We provide all the materials, including pure cotton tea towels, colour-fast textile inks and a range of lino cutting tools. For inspiration we will bring our collection of design and printmaking books as well as examples of Gillian’s lino blocks. The price even includes a glass of wine and nibbles!
At the end of this three-hour workshop you will have a beautiful hand printed tea towel and your own lino block which can be re-used to print your own stationery, wrapping paper, or even more tea towels! The inks dry very quickly, so your tea towel will be ready to take home. Additional tea towels are available for speedy printers.
Have a look at our Facebook album album to see previous printing workshops in action. This workshop is suitable for beginners and children age 11 and over are very welcome with an adult.
Gillian runs Crafty Pint workshops and is a member of the Seaside Sisters. Her love of printmaking and collecting vintage tea towels inspired her to develop this popular workshop which she has been running for some years. Gillian’s creative workshops are informal and sociable, providing an opportunity to learn a new skill and meet your crafty neighbours.
The CUT & PASTE shop will be open, so you are welcome to drop in earlier for a browse, and those coming straight from work who need to arrive a bit later are very welcome to stay later as well to make up the time.
Bookings and further details are over here on the Crafty Fox website.
