Explore block printing on Textiles in Hampshire
Next promoted date: Tuesday 15th November 2022 - max 5 places. Sunday 19th March 2023 - Mother’s Day, as part of Art in the Barn - a creative arts week, max 10 places. If you have ever considered designing and creating something to use in your home or thought about making personalised gifts for your family and friends, this is the workshop for you. Join me in the heart of the Meon Valley to explore kitchen table printing. Simply bring along your design ideas for images, patterns and shapes and learn how to translate these into a design, before cutting a stamp using Essdee Master Cut and printing your design. We will initially create paper and card based products, such as gift tags and gift wrap, before printing onto tea towels or tote bags. The workshop will be delivered in The Stables or the Long Barn, depending on the size of the group. Both are inspirational spaces in a beautiful setting; the venues are set on a working in The South Downs National Park. The workshop will be delivered by Alison Butler. With over 25 years experience as a textile designer and book illustrator, Alison enjoys sharing her wide ranging skills and knowledge. This workshop is suitable for people with a range of creative experiences, wishing to explore printing stamps onto paper and fabric, for a maximum of 5 people (Sunday 19th March 2023, 10 people). Please bring along: an apron, A5/6 ideas/drawings/images that inspire you and a large newspaper in which to transport your work home. You may wish to bring samples of different fabrics that you already have, i.e plain white cotton, calico or pale printed fabrics, to experiment with printing onto; these should be washed and ironed ahead of the workshop.
