In this fascinating workshop, you will be taught how to use striking, repeat patterns to print on fabric. Textile designer Lizzie Mabley will guide you through the process from designing and carving your own lino block, to experimenting with colour and repeat patterns on different types of fabric.
All materials will be provided and you will go home with a printed tea towel, cotton bag and a small length of your printed fabric to make into something at home. You will be working on a design approximately 10 x 10 cm, so if you have any ideas bring them along and Lizzie will help you simplify your design if necesary. There will be lots of ideas to help you and examples of previous students work to see what is achievable.
Suitable for beginners as well as those who have done some lino printing before, this workshop will be fun, relaxed and informal.
