Block printing on fabric in Hampshire. Fully Booked. Additional date to be confirmed shortly



As part of our Art in the Barn Creative Arts Week, we will be offering an introduction to block printing on fabric.
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 us in our thatched Long Barn in the heart of the Meon Valley. This is a light and spacious venue which allows you to be socially distanced from the other participants, with use of your own equipment.

Bring along your designs ideas or images, patterns and shapes and learn how to translate them 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 and tote bags.

This workshop is suitable for people with a range of creative experiences, wishing to explore printing stamps on to paper and fabric.

The workshop will be delivered by Alison Butler and Liz Wellby: Alison has over 25 years experience as a textile designer and book illustrator, whilst Liz is an experienced fine artist, teacher and maker, with a particular interest in print.

Social distancing measures will be in place.

What an amazing escape from the stresses of life this course was. Beautiful surroundings. All appropriate saftey measures in place .
Im a complete novice so was apprehensive but keen to learn.
I was well supported and encouraged by the lovely instructor. Had plenty of time to try lots of different approaches to this art form. The day just flew by.
I will definitely be back to try other art projects here. It was a real tonic. Thank you

Really super day with friendly and knowledgable tutors in a gorgeous location. As a complete beginner I was a bit worried about how I would get on but both Alison and Liz were very patient and approachable. Covid guidelines were explained clearly and it was easy to physically distance, even during the demonstrations. I would thoroughly recommend both the course and the tutors. Thanks for a lovely day!

Response from Blooming Designs - Art in the Barn:
