Have you ever searched for the perfect lampshade for your home and been unable to find it? Lino printmaker Hannah Turlington has had the same problem. Join her for a day learning how to design and hand print your own fabric and then use it to make a lampshade.

You will learn

– the process of lino printing
– how to carve and print with a lino block
– creating simple repeat designs
– how to hand print your own fabric
– how to transform your fabric into a beautiful lampshade

Hannah will be on hand to demonstrate, support and guide you through the making of a lampshade that fits you and your home. You will leave with your own designed and handprinted lampshade together with your unique hand-carved lino block, which you can use again and again at home to add to your new range.

You will be printing fabric to make a lampshade of 20cm diameter and 18cm height – perfect for a table or bedside lamp.

Please note there will be a £15 materials charge for this workshop payable to the tutor on the day.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.

There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to!

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. All refreshments are included.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

What you’ll need to bring with you

Ideally you will come with some inspiration, nature gives us wonderful ideas. Hannah will bring along hand printed examples and lino blocks of her work to get you going.

Everything else you need will be provided.

Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting messed up and bring an apron if you want one.
