Our 2013 Certificate IV in Design students had loads of fun designing and printing a Christmas Tea Towel.
After developing their designs, they worked through the process of cutting stencils, mixing paints, arranging placement and finally screen printing them onto beautiful linen tea towels. There was plenty of mess and experimenting, whilst valuable lessons were learnt from the placement, colour mixing, team work and the importance of a dry clean screen. Everyone had so much fun and the results were amazing.
Having designed and produced amazing products, the tea towels were taken to The Olive Tree Markets, where both products and students joined PlumTart textiles in selling their wares.
A huge thank you to everyone who purchased an original Christmas tea towel, but it doesn’t stop there! All profits have been given to Compassion where it will be used to support Compassion’s Critical Interventions. This will assist Compassion in removing any obstacles that stand in the way of a child’s healthy development and their ability to reach their full potential.
We also congratulate Lesley Regnis on winning the ‘People’s Choice Award’ for her ‘Bush Christmas’ Design.
