Gillian will be joining local artists in her corner of South London for the first of the Handmade in Tooting exhibitions. Setting up in an old green grocers, now appropriately called Sprout Arts, Gillian will be exhibiting her Fabric Nation vintage textile accessories and homewares and running a packed programme of textile workshops during November.

Workshops include…

Textile Tuesdays on 16th and 23rd November 7-9.30pm

Print your own vintage inspired fabric and then make it into an apron, bag or purse.  Gillian will be sharing her vintage fabric collection for inspiration and providing tutorials in lino printing and textiles.  No previous experience is needed and all materials are provided.  By the end of this two-part workshop you will have gained an insight into textile design, created your own lino block for printing and will take home your own printed fabric made up into a useable item of your choice.

The cost of £25 per person includes two evening sessions and materials. To book a place and for more details, contact Gillian.
