We’re delighted to be able to welcome Helen Ruth Greensmith, the textile designer behind Helen Ruth Scarves [https://helenruth.co.uk/], back to DCA!
Working from her home studio in Aberdeen, Helen runs a luxury accessories label specialising in digitally printed silk and wool scarves. She uses her own hand drawn illustrations to create stunning pieces full of colour, all inspired by the wild Scottish landscapes, animal life, fairy tales and folklore.
Join Helen for this autumn-inspired workshop, where you'll learn how to use dried foliage, a hot foil press and some simple but effective printmaking techniques to create your own bespoke lampshade. There will be plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits on hand to help fuel your making during this relaxed and fun afternoon of crafting.
Once the workshop is complete, take your lampshade home and use it to give an old lamp a new lease of life. You’ll also be able to apply your new skills to other projects, so you can continue to decorate your home using this simple technique.
