Have you seen these ?  They don't use GTK, but they do use Tcl/Tk ...

 Description: This is a version of Tk which uses curses.  Applications with
        a modern GUI-ish interface can be created for character terminals.
        CTk is a subset of Tk, being unable to do things like scaling
        canvases, selection, send, active backgrounds, etc.
        A version 4.2 is available at ccfadm.
        The version by Mr. Schwartz, at du.edu, has been upgraded to
        work with Tcl 8, but does not yet support Tk 8 features.
        There are rpms at redhat which have been upgraded with patches
        to seem to work with Tk 4.2.p12/Tcl 7.4p3.
