Tantalising Textiles - Textile printing workshop with Fiona Howard

Date: 23 April 2010

10am - 4pm

Fiona Howard has created some very well-known textile designs including the incredibly popular Sanderson print Dandelion Clocks.

This is a great opportunity to spend the day here at the Fashion and Textile Museum near London Bridge, in the company of one of the UK's foremost textile designers who will guide you through the key techniques that will help you produce your own special print.

Fiona will take participants through the process from research and demonstration to then drawing your own design, tracing it onto lino and then cutting and printing it. There is also the opportunity for the design you make to be printed onto Sanderson fabric and made up into a cushion cover.

Participants will have the opportunity on the day to browse and gain inspiration from our current exhibition Very Sanderson: 150 Years of English Decoration.
