Swim Little Fishes Lino Printed Wall Hanging with Louise Nichols

13th April @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


‘Swim Little Fish’ Hanging Workshop
The ‘Swim Little Fish’ hanging consists of a printed sea background & a selection of individually printed fish that
have been embellished & then mounted onto the sea. On the workshop there will be a variety of different coloured backgrounds & fish for you to choose from. You’ll spend the day embellishing & adding detail to both the sea & the fish using a selection of threads, felt, beads, sequins etc. before adding the wording, constructing the hanging & mounting the fish on top.

There’ll be written instructions to take away if you don’t manage to finish the hanging on the day. The completed hanging measures approx. 25cm x 17cm, including the loops & over-hanging fish.

Louise will bring along all the materials & threads needed on the day, which will be available to purchase, but you’re also welcome to bring along your own.

The cost for the prints will be:- Sea – £3.50 Fish – 25p each Approx. cost for whole hanging £6.50
All costs will be itemised on the day.
