Event description

Description

Another exciting new addition to our workshop offerings!

Print your own drawstring project bag - Lino block textile printing workshop

With a botanical/floral theme for your lino stamps, first of all you will design and carve your lino to produce your printing blocks. You will then have time to experiment with printing onto fabric and play with different coloured inks before selecting your chosen design/pattern and colour/s to print with on your cotton drawstring project bag.

All materials will be supplied as well as images to use to inspire and create your blocks.

You will go home with your amazing design handprinted on a large 40-50cm cotton drawstring project bag for you to store all your sewing/knitting projects in!

About Natalie:

I'm Natalie a printmaker based near Tiverton, Devon and I have a love for all things printmaking! I have 10 years experience teaching printmaking and Art & Design in a FE College and particularly enjoy teaching others the wonderful print processes of monoprinting, Lino cut printing and silkscreen printing on fabric and paper. My personal work and brand represents a botanical theme 'Print Nineteen' and after leaving my teaching career last year I'm now focusing on delivering day/evening print workshops for the local community, craft and learning new skills which are great for our wellbeing and of course just so much fun!

Print Nineteen

Additional Information:

The lino block we use is a soft cut lino but please note the lino cutting blades we use are sharp (all safety information/use and guidance will be given). Minimum age 16+ for this workshop.

Natalie will demonstrate each stage for you to follow but of course there will be time to play and experiment to make your design your own.

Feel free to bring in a small image of a leaf and/or flower you may want to make into a stamp, but I will supply stencils/images for you to use as well so this is not compulsory.

You will use a self setting fabric block printing ink that will cure overnight and does not require heat setting unlike nearly all fabric inks. So you will be able to take your bag home and just leave to dry overnight for it to be permanent and also washable (washing not recommended until 4-7 days after printing)

Please bring your own lunch. There are also many local places to buy lunch nearby.

Tea-time treats and refreshments will also be served.

Either book here through Eventbrite, call 01626 836203 or pop into the shop in person.

Workshop attendees receive a Spin a Yarn discount voucher on the day, valid for one month from the date of the workshop on yarn and accessories.
