Be Creative with your blocks
There is no limit to how you can use them!

Pottery-Ideas-300x150

At Colouricious we are always on the look out for different ways to use wooden printing blocks for crafting. We have shown you in the past how to use them with special friendly plastics and we have now realised that our blocks will be perfect for block printing in clay to make beautifully designed pots and any other clay based projects. Just press the block firmly into the clay making sure it is well supported at the time and you will get the imprint clearly shown in the clay ready for it to be glazed and fired. It is a really simple thing to do, and if you make pots and boxes from clay, a perfect way to decorate them. Yet another fantastic use for our wonderful wooden printing blocks!

Look how beautifully you can glaze your pottery by simply gently pressing your wooden printing blocks into your clay!

Textile Holidays
There are still some places available on trips to Vietnam, Jaipur and Rajasthan

colouricious textile holidays

Our wonderful holidays are filling up fast, but if you are still undecided, we have a few places available on our trips to Vietnam, Jaipur and Rajasthan.

Colouricious Textile Holidays are perfect for you if you just love stitch, embroidery, block printing, quilting and textile art. We specialise in really unique holidays that go off the normal tourist route and onto the off the beaten track. We love to explore rural villages, traditional textile techniques which honour the ethnic culture of each country that we visit. Always looking out for colour, culture, patterns and people, you will discover India presents a feast for the senses. On our textile trips, we really want to find the real event with the real people by taking you places that you did not even know existed. Some of our textile holidays are aimed at those who like a little more comfort – such as in Jaipur, we stay for the whole holiday in one hotel and take little day trips out from that one base. However, some of our textile trips are more intrepid – we have our own coach which travels around a specific area – such as the embroidery holidays – moving onto the next attraction each day. Whatever you love to do and see, you will be delighted at our magnificent little daily adventures together. So if you need a holiday that is for you, featuring visits to what you love, then our Colouricious Textile Holidays are designed for you! Come, enjoy and make new friends too. With a friend, a partner, a family member, or by yourself – we are all together having the time of our lives.

Festival of Quilts

As you read this newsletter, we will be busy packing everything up ready to get on the road to be at the Festival of Quilts which starts on Thursday. I really love this exhibition as it is very popular and everybody that attends seems to be so passionate about quilting and crafting in general.

If you are going to come along this year, I am on stand F40 and I would love to see as many Colouricious Club members as possible. It really thrills me to meet up with you all and I love that you take the time to come and say hello.(say, ” Your hair looks lovely to day” and wink at the same time, and you will get 10% instant discount off your purchases that day!!!
