Make your own drawstring pouch using Liberty tana lawn with the artist Masako Nishiyama of Check & Stripe.
Tana Lawn is the speciality of Liberty of London. During the 1920s their renowned cotton fabric buyer and designer, William Haynes Dorrell sourced a particularly fine grade of long staple cotton from Africa and named it ‘Tana’ for Lake Tana in Sudan. The pure combed or carded cotton has an exceptionally high thread count, giving a silky feel despite the crisp crease resistant texture: it is still processed in Lancashire without added chemicals or allergens. (read more about it in the Southern issue of Selvedge)
Pretty and nostalgic, tana lawn has a place in practically every home and your draw-string bag will make a perfect gift or accessory. Buy your tickets here.
*The bag structure will be partially done in advance so that beginners can finish theirs in time.
Students are asked to bring: needles, pins and embroidery scissors.
