What you will do

3 hour workshop

Daytime

Learn to print with antique wooden textile printing blocks, hand carved in India and salvaged from the textile industry.

You will be using a neat and efficient technique to print with the blocks, ideal for motif, one-off and repeat patterns. These can be muti-layered, in a colour scheme of your choice. You will have help and expert advice every single step of the way.

The prints will be made using professional textile print paste. The paste is hand mixed and once printed onto the fabric it is machine washable. Create bespoke crafted and hand printed textile designs on upcycled fabrics and on a 100% recycled cotton bag.

This is a relaxed, friendly workshop, and Susannah is an experienced and qualified teacher. With many years of bringing out the potential in students of all ages and abilities. By the end of the workshop you will feel confident in printing and creating designs, with an armful of your printed fabrics to take home with you as well as a bag.

The ethos of the workshop is to make the waste from the textile industry beautiful and useful once more.

Susannah was a great teacher- she took the time to explain/ guide us individually if needed and shared her large knowledge about the practice of block printing. I would definitely recommend the workshop- I am looking forward to continue the practice and to get more creative!

A fun and relaxed way to get creative whilst meeting new people and having a cuppa and a chat. Susannah is a lovely host and made sure everyone got the most out of the workshop with useful tips and guidance. I especially love the bag I printed!

I really enjoyed the workshop. We were warmly welcomed by susannah and made to feel very relaxed and comfortable. The blocks we used for printing are absolutely gorgeous and I was very pleased with the end result, I printed a cushion cover, a bag and some material. Susannah was extremely helpful and explained everything very clearly.
