June meeting

We're going to get crafty for our June meeting when we welcome crafter extraordinaire and fellow W.I. member Xtina Lamb of Printed Wonders.


Xtina is also part of the Seaside Sisters, a craft collective based in London, who make and sell handmade textile and paper goods and who have run event workshops at locations as diverse as Vintage at Goodwood, the Southbank, Christie’s Multiplied art fair, the Eco Design Fair, Craft Central, Got Craft?, the Barbican and Kensington Palace. They will also be present at the forthcoming Battersea Park Diamond Jubilee Festival.


We're really pleased that Xtina is going to come to teach us all about the Japanese technique of Gocco printing, which is a simple table top method of screen printing (Sara's 7 year old went to one of Xtina's workshop and mastered it in no time). The results are fantastic and we're all going to get the opportunity to print our own greetings cards and more....

There will be an additional cost to cover the materials of £3 for this session.
