Half day courses are offered, either morning or afternoon, in my lovely Wendy House.
Suitable for beginners or experienced wooden block printers, in small groups up to 6 people.
You can print on a variety of fabric 'blanks' consisting of shopping bags, tea towels, cushion covers, aprons or perhaps some bunting. I have either white or natural calico for you to print on if you wish to use the printed fabric for your own projects. There is also the option to print your own wrapping paper, gift tags or greetings cards. It's up to you.
The session will start with a hot drink, while I demonstrate the technique. This will include the use of borders, how to create a repeating pattern and how to use the colours to create a complementary design. After that its up to you, first to choose from my wide selection of blocks and colours, then to practice on paper and fabric, until you're confident to start printing.
We will start with a simple calico shopping bag, or some paper for wrapping paper, and then its on to your main project, choose something from the above list of fabric blanks, and get printing and have fun.
Use your hand printed individual items to enhance your home or make beautiful presents for your friends and family. In the course of half a day, you should expect to print a shopping bag, a tea towel and an apron or a cushion cover (pads are not included), or a different item of your choice.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
A welcome tea or coffee, hot or cold drinks will be available throughout the session. Biscuits, cakes or flap jacks will be in plentiful supply to keep your energy levels up. Please inform me of any special dietary requirements.
All materials except for button cushion blanks, including paper, cards and pre-made fabric blanks, or plain fabric.
If you want to make a 'button cushion' a £10 supplement applies, I will also complete it including fabric covered buttons, and post it out to you. The cushion pads are not included, I can get them in for you to fit, for the price that they cost me.
I can travel to you and present a half or full day workshop for up to 15 people. Please email me for prices and details.
