What will you learn?
Say it in print this Christmas! Make exclusive, original gifts by printing onto fabric, tea towels and tote bags, using a variety of print methods, including letterpress and lino. You will also be able to print on to cards and paper.
This is a fun class for all levels, where you will be able to play with colour and print to make some great, personalised gifts. Using mismatched, vintage wooden letters, plus modern letters, you will be able to print slogans and names onto tea towels and bags and cushion covers. You can also bring your own fabric to make into items of your choice.
All your items can be embellished with lino and foam cut designs that you design and cut on the day. A small selection of pre-cut blocks will be available for those who do not want to design their own.
You will be shown lots of ways to make great designs that people would be happy to receive as gifts.
