Working with Julia Phillips, you’ll use traditional or contemporary Indian wooden printing blocks to decorate a large cotton tea towel. You will learn how to apply the water-based fabric paint to achieve reliable results every time as well as understanding how to care for your wooden blocks.
You will start by practising the technique and design before printing the tea towel, then you will heat-set the paint using a hot iron, or pop it in the tumble dryer. Five minutes later, you will have a beautiful, unique and functional item that is washable at 40 deg C – and, if you are speedy Gonzalez, you may even print more than one tea towel.
Julia will supply all materials at £2.00 per towel, payable directly to her on the day. Please bring an apron to protect your clothing.
