In this workshop you will see lots of examples before designing your own print pattern. Catherine will show you how to cut this design onto a lino printing block and then how to use fabric block inks to print your design onto a cotton calico bag. You will have fabric scraps for test pieces and complete 2 x bag projects. 2 bags to take away - something for yourself and something as a gift for a friend!
Please note the October class can be halloween based making trick/treat bags.
The venue is fully COVID compliant.
Due to such small class size, Catherine is able to offer almost 1 to 1 tuition. You will be encouraged to come up with your own ideas and lead your own projects, with Catherine on hand to talk through process, risks and also a gentle push to challenge yourself. Any unfinished work each week can be completed easily at home.
Catherine sells home kits and print equipment. The fee for these classes includes equipment to LOAN in the class and some materials like fabric and inks with 2 bag bases. Due to COVID NON SHARE rules on equipment you can either purchase your kit items from Catherine, loan a set or you can bring along your own - or both!
Visit her shop during the class to see the wide range of cutters, rollers, papers and lino base materials you can try. Inks are sold in small 30ml tins - she offers over 20 colours to choose from.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and equipment and materials.

Superb kit for two. Really nice set of tools, limo, paper, cards and ink. Some clear instructions are included and along with the videos are really informative.
I was delighted with this lino kit and I ordered extra colours too. Catherine responded straight away to my order request and it was quickly despatched and beautifuly packaged.
If times change I would happily stay in Liverpool (I live in Surrey) a few days to attend one of her face to face sessions.
Catherine is an excellent person to interact with !! ****************
This kit is just what I wanted. The materials and tools are of good quality and the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The clear explanations and guidelines and tips make for a positive and encouraging result to make you want to do more. Additionally, the set came beautifully wrapped and without 'over the top packaging' which is very important to me. I would recommend this product and in one word it is 'excellent'! Thank you
Loved the packaging . Saw the YouTube tutorials and I am very pleased with all the materials sent by Catherine.
Even tried on a Lino sheet and I think I’m getting addicted to it. Just stripping off each layer of the Lino sheet has been so therapeutic for me ... love love it .
Thank you Catherine
I can't quite go to excellent as I have not used the kit yet, but..... It arrived beautifully packaged and with everything included.
I am looking forward to using it on the next rainy day and as I want to use my own design - when I have decided which it will be.
I love this kit, its something to keep my husband and I entertained through lockdown and we're very much looking forward to trying it.
The seller was super helpful and it arrived quickly. She also put in a bit extra for us as we are doing it as a pair which was unexpected but very gratefully received.
Would 100% use this seller again for any other kits that take our fancy.
