About this course
19-20 October – two-day weekend course
Spend a fabulous weekend with the fabulous Cornish printmaker Lou Tonkin. Find inspiration from the textile artists who were at Dartington in the 1930 and 40s and design and print your own beautiful textiles.
This introductory course will lead you through an exploration of pattern, print and design, with hands-on textile design and printing skills, which can then be applied to organic linen
Lou is an influential Cornish printmaker who specialises in nature inspired prints.
She says: “We will spend the weekend together as a group, working with sketches from Dartington archives and favourite found objects to create individual printed scarves and artwork. During the weekend, we will first create a wonderful botanical still life together, from which you will create designs to cut into a lino block. From this block you will print your own artworks.”
Reconnect with the tradition of textile making at Dartington and celebrate Susan Bosence’s life and work and Dorothy’ Elmhirst’s patronage of cutting edge craft makers Barron and Larcher at Dartington.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
