Last, but not least, we have Nicola Cliffe from Madder Cutch & Co. Nicola has an MA in sustainable textile design and with inspiration from her surroundings and a love to draw, Nicola turns her sketches into flowing repeats and screen prints them by hand in her garden studio.
During this workshop, you will learn about the screen printing process and the possibilities for creating your own prints. You will then sketch your designs using the gardens as inspiration. You will be working with natural dye colours and at the end of the day you will take home either an apron and tea towel OR 2 cushion covers with your very own screen print design on.
