Design & Block Print a Lampshade/ cushion with Georgia Wilkinson

Over first coffees Georgia will tell you a little about herself and explain what is possible over the day, with hints and tips for any design you may have in mind to make it suitable for a repeat pattern. Once your design is finalised on paper you will learn to make block prints using a variety of mixed media tools and you will practise on paper before turning and printing up the cotton Panama fabric she supplies.

The material for the lampshade will be then cured and hand rolled and carefully finished into a lampshade.  A further piece of fabric can be printed for a matching cushion cover front to take home and make a cushion.
