What you'll do

Work alongside Royal College of Art trained printmaker Stephanie Sloan to design and make your own linocut design and hand print your own unique tea towel. This is a packed workshop where you will explore textile design and illustration techniques and repeat pattern process. Using florals as a starting point, Stephanie will guide you through the drawing process and you will be supported in designing your own block print and shown how to cut your printing block using linocut technique. The afternoon will be spent experimenting with application of print onto textiles, working with colour and repeat pattern process, finishing with printing your own custom tea towel featuring your pattern design. We will provide all the materials: linoleum blocks, carving tools, textile printing ink, and a cotton tea towel. Beginners welcome!

Learn more about Stephanie

Stephanie

I am an illustrator and printmaker and have worked in the design industry for the past 15 years. I studied at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin and later achieved a Master in Printed textiles at the Royal College of Art in London. I am passionate about print, and love seeing other people get the same joy from seeing their designs emerge on fabric as I do! I combine my teaching work with working on private textile and art commissions and regularly sell and exhibit my screenprinted work.
