About this event

You will be taking home 4 beautiful Irish linen napkins with your own botanical design that we hope will have been inspired from the garden here at Water Lane. The class will take place inside our glorious heated Pelargonium House. Hand block printing is immensely satisfying, a calm and extremely rewarding way to combine artistry with sustainability.
Starting with a brief run-through, you’ll be guided through the fascinating process of hand block printing with a quick demonstration and Q&A session, at every stage Trudi is on hand to guide and advise. You’ll choose from the large selection of authentic botanical wooden blocks and colours to reflect the glorious setting of Water Lane.
After a light lunch, you will print your final design (s) onto your crisp linen napkins, they will be iron fixed, wrapped for you to take home, washed-off and admired.During the day tea and coffee will be provided and at lunchtime a simple light meal in the restaurant is included.
We have plenty of pinny’s available but please DON’T wear your Sunday best, block printing can get a tad mucky!
Trudi's crisp linen napkins have been sustainably sourced directly from the manufacturers in Ireland, with over 100 yrs of skilled & experienced work force they consistently ensure the finest quality whilst detailing a beautiful punched hem.
