• Block Printing •



Block-printing is an incredibly simple and easy way to start designing patterns on fabric. It's an ancient art with a long and rich history, but it's also a fun project that you can easily learn in an hour, and continue to perfect and enjoy for years to come. You can use block-printing to quickly and easily embellish all kinds of textiles, from tea towels to pillowcases to t-shirts to quilting fabric. In this workshop we'll jump right in and experiment with a few prints using found objects, just to get a feel for the process, then we'll learn to carve our own designs and print them on fabric. We'll provide each student with a few pieces of muslin and two cotton tea-towels to print on; you also may like to bring in some of your own fabric, t-shirts or other textile (or paper) goods to try printing on. This is a skill that's quick and easy to learn, and offers endless creative possibilities!
