Thursday 1 December
10am – 2pm

Join us for a festive day of block printing using natural inks and sustainable fabrics to create a collection of alternative eco-friendly wraps, perfect for Christmas! Furoshiki are painted or printed wrapping cloths traditionally used as informal gift wrapping in Japan. This ancient craft has seen a recent revival as we all look towards more sustainable ways of living, and meaningful gifting. Use pre-cut patterned blocks with festive shapes to explore repeat printing, then design and cut your own motif to print with. You’ll come away from your eco printed textiles workshop with an understanding of the printing process and materials, and a set of  printed wraps that you can use as an eco alternative to gift wrap this Christmas.
