Thu 25 February, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£25.00
Come to our block printing workshop and make a special cushion cover - Il Magpie Miscellanea Di S

This block printing workshop is a good idea for those who want to co-ordinate their decor with their cushions, declare their love for an animal or simply keep on trend. Join me at the Nest, located just outside Winchester (UK) and get your hands dirty! For further details of times etc. please scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Come to our block printing workshop and make a special cushion cover - Il Magpie Miscellanea Di SWho is it for?:

Any adult who wants to have a go. No previous experience necessary!

What will I learn?:

During this workshop you will use materials that I provide to develop your own printing block design and make your block(s).  You then use them to print your design on a cotton cushion cover. I will teach you some tricks and tips to make sure that your block will work well as  print and the subject of it is up to you.

How many people will there be in the group?:

We limit group sizes to five people at a time so that you can receive a high level of attention from the teacher and get to know everyone without feeling intimidated.

What is provided?:Come to our block printing workshop and make a special cushion cover - Il Magpie Miscellanea Di S

You will be provided with a cushion cover, paper to practise your design on, inspiration sheets and examples to help you design, the materials needed to make your printing block and fabric paints.

What do I need to bring?:

If you want your cushion to match existing decor please bring either a sample or a close up photograph of the colours/patterns you are trying to match. It is really difficult to mix colours without a visual reference.

Please bring an apron or old shirt to protect your clothes and wear clothing that you can roll up the sleeve on!

Come to our block printing workshop and make a special cushion cover - Il Magpie Miscellanea Di SWhat do I take home?:

You leave the workshop with your printed cover, your block (in case you want to make more!) and a cushion pad to fit the cover. You can also take any practice patterns that you print if you wish to.

You could go Art Nouveau, Geometric, Ethnically Influenced or simply cute. Your imagination is the only limit!

Book on today, relax and enjoy trying out a new skill.
