Join us at our author talk and listen to Rosie Sanders talk about the creation of her book, “ Flowers: A Celebration of Botanical Art”.
Please don’t miss this opportunity to be surprised and delighted by this rich tapestry of sensory delight and visual feast.
Block-Printing Workshop: Trudi will guide you through this fascinating process, learning the art of placing, turning and repeating to create your own bespoke design using the large collection of authentic wooden blocks available to use.
Classes start with an informal introduction, quick demonstration and Q&A session. Once you have chosen your blocks and colours each session is taken- up, firstly by perfecting your printing technique and the design for application onto either a silk or fine cotton batiste scarf/table runner, cotton kercihef/napkins along with paper sheets to use as handprinted gift wrap, drawer-liners or book coverings.
