Block Print and Lampshade Making

Sat 2 October 10am - 4pm

£56/£53(c) • Friends £54/£51(c)

Looking for that unique accent piece to finish off your home or maybe give as a present? Join printmaker and fabric designer Lizzie Mabley to design, print and make your own lampshade.

This is a busy but informal one-day workshop, suitable for complete beginners and those who have done some lino printing before. You’ll learn how to create your own unique lino printing block from which you’ll print a small length of fabric. Lizzie will then help you use your fabric to construct a gorgeous 30cm drum lampshade. You will be working on simple designs of about 10x10cm, so if you have any ideas do bring them along. Lizzie will help you simplify your designs if necessary and help you achieve a truly remarkable finished piece. All materials supplied, but please bring an apron or wear old clothes as the inks you’ll be using will stain!
