The Tea & Make launchpad!

We're very proud to see one of our lovely Tea & Makers, Zeena Shah taking her workshop skills one step further and teaching at a Printmaking Skill Share at Chesterton Community College later in the month.  Since encouraging her to put on her first ever workshop - Christmas cracker-making - at one of our first events in SE London in Christmas '09, we also asked her to take part in our Friday Late at the V&A last April where she led a super-successful collective patchwork open-workshop... and onwards and upwards she's gone from there. Go Zeena! If you're in the Cambridge area then you can find out how to book a place here

Lino Printing Tutorial

For all of you lovely people who came to our fun Lino Printing Workshop at the Pop-Up Shop just berfore Christmas, we are really sorry it's taken us this long to put a link to a tutorial up! All the hard work definitely meant our brains shut down completely over Christmas!! I know some of you had already bought your lino printing bits but for those of you who haven't had time, here is a really great little tutorial from Southampton-based photographer Angie Muldowney

See the tutotrial here!!

We went to the wonderful Atlantis in East London for our supplies, but most good art shops stock them, and ebay and amazon also have a good selection too.

Good luck and if you do any printing please make sure you email pics to us at esther@teaandmake.co.uk
