Spring Fabric Printing Workshop

Join us at University Arms hotel for a Spring fabric printing workshop with Lovely Lydia.

  • 6th April 2024 - 6th April 2024
  • 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us on Saturday 6th April, 2-4:30pm, for a Spring fabric printing workshop with Lovely Lydia. 

This is the perfect and fun way to try out printing to textiles – a workshop aimed at exploring and playing, with a tea towel and tote you’ve printed yourself to take home. It’s a really laid back and accessible way to try out fabric printing and leave with two unique handprinted pieces- everyone will ask where you got them! A great workshop to enjoy with a friend as an afternoon out this Spring.

Lydia, ‘Lovely Lydia, is a fabric printer, maker, dressmaker from the Suffolk Coast and runs her own microbusiness printing and making personal and home accessories. With her experience and guidance you’ll spend the afternoon printing with a huge range of wooden printing blocks and linocut designs, with a rainbow of paint colours to experiment with. You can explore her work here: https://lovelylydia.co.uk/

The imposing lamppost in the centre of Parker’s Piece bears the words Reality Checkpoint – believed to be a reference to the end of the university ‘bubble’ and the beginning of the real world, aka the rest of the city.
