Block Printing with Tobias and The Angel

 

Tuesday 11 July 2017, 10-5, £185 per person

Hosted by Angel Hughes of Tobias and the Angel

Angel opened her shop, Tobias and the Angel in 1986 as a pretty "junk shop". Since then it has evolved and customers can find hand-block printed fabrics and shades, custom built furniture, interior design consultation and Angel's collection of unique hand-made and vintage Christmas decorations.

Join us for a full day at Angel's charming block printing workshop in Lingfield where you will learn to mix dyes, print cloth and practice simple techniques with Angel’s collection of over 2000 printing blocks.

The aim of the day is to print and fix a piece of linen for you to take away – large enough for a pinny, bag or cushion.

Throughout the course, Angel will be explaining each of the processes, helping with the techniques and illustrating these with stories of unexpected successes, terrible blunders and her ongoing passion for the whole process. No previous experience neccessary. 

The course includes all materials and a fresh and delicious homemade lunch, if you have any dietary requirements please email Emma promotions@selvedge.org
