Make Your Own Hand-Printed Christmas Wrapping Fabric – Saturday 5th December 2020
Make yours a sustainable Christmas this year and join our creative workshop to learn to make your own beautiful hand-printed and reusable wrapping fabric this festive season!
During this workshop you will be shown how to create hand-carved, seasonally themed stamps by carving patterns and images into lino. You will be taken through the whole process from concept to completion, learning how to design a repeat pattern to cut into lino and how to print this onto fabric using a variety of colours to create a unique handmade wrapping fabric.
You will then be shown how to wrap items using your new reusable wrapping fabric and use found objects to adorn your gift to make it extra special for the festive season. Perfect when wrapping presents for friends, family, and loved ones.
This technique is hugely versatile and can be used time and time again once learned to make your own fabric and paper wrapping for any occasion!
Image and pattern examples will be given to you beforehand and on the day so there will be plenty of inspiration and options to choose from. All materials, lino, inks and tools will be provided, as well as tea and coffee to keep those creative juices flowing.
This workshop is suitable for all skill levels as guidance and support is given every step of the way.
This workshop will be taking place at Granton Hub, Madelvic House, Granton Park Avenue, Edinburgh EH5 1HS. Madelvic House is just off the cycle path, has a dedicated car park and is a 2 minute walk from the number 19, 16 and 200 bus stop. We will be using their large studio space which will allow for social distancing and have implemented all health and safety measures to ensure your safety and comfort. More details of these measures will be emailed out to confirmed attendees the week before the workshop start date.
