Block Printing Workshop (half-day)
Our half day printing workshop is a great introduction to Indian block printing. Our Oxfordshire studio holds everything you need for a fun, relaxing and creative day out with plenty of inspiration to help you during your block printing workshop! Your day will start with a welcome drink & introduction. You will then rummage through hundreds of designs choosing a section of prints to get started with and a selection of textile colours. We will then give a detailed demonstration showing you how to block print and the equipment you need, after this it will be time for you to go away and start printing yourselves! We will be on hand to help with any adjustments and advice you might need, and you will spend the first hour of the morning testing your chosen designs and colours onto practice fabric, getting confident with different printing techniques. You can then move onto printing a range of different paper & stationary items such as tissue paper, cards & tags. After a break you will have the ideas and confidence to move on to printing a fabric item, you can choose between a selection of fabric items we will have available. Before heading home, we will fix/ heat set your fabric item to make it washable. This workshop will teach you all the tips & techniques you need to know when block printing, as well as leaving with a stash of your own printed creations you'll also leave with the knowledge and confidence to carry on block printing at home!
