block printing:

my block printed tea towel

Over the weekend I returned to the school, run by stylist Megan Morton (you may recall I visited earlier in the year) with my lovely mother and sister for some block printing action with textile designer Joanna Fowles. Using hand-made, wooden shapes, we printed geometric patterns on to beautiful linen napkins and tea towels. It was one of the most therapeutic and relaxing things I have done in a while, and could have easily just kept going all afternoon. On completion we all each had four napkins and a tea towel to take home and use. Too good.  
Check out the School's website for upcoming classes and you must check out Joanna's online store, filled with her  STUNNING one off, hand made pieces.
