Alison Hulme – Print, Print, Print and Make a Pinny
Two Day Course
Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st May
With Alison Hulme a.k.a ‘the Pinny Lady’ you will print your very own fabric, using a huge selection thermofax screens, jelly printing and Indian blocks. You will learn a whole range of techniques and how to successfully combine them to create your unique design.
You will also have the opportunity to construct your very own original pinny and have fabric left over for further projects.
This workshop is limited to ten students so you will have plenty of space to work in.
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments both days
