Requirements for March

"Printing for stitch", with Alison Hulme.


Alison will be bringing complete kits for us to work with (There will be a £10.00 cost for the pack) so you should only need to bring:-


* Waterproof gloves.

* Apron.

* Stain/waterproof table covering.

* Newspaper for the floor, to prevent splashes causing any stains.

* Any type of fabric to print on.


As there are 20 places on this cource( and everyone needs their own tabl) e, if anyone has a table that they could bring that would be helpful. Thank you.


We don't think there is likely to be any time for the stitch itself but, if you are not undertaking the printing session yourself, do bring your own work.
