Your day will start with a welcome drink & introduction- getting you settled for the day ahead. 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 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 Lunch you will have the confidence and ideas to move on to printing fabric items, there will be a selection of different materials for you to choose from which are all included in the price of the workshop.

My friend and I had a very enjoyable day on the block printing course. The tutor was very friendly and informative. We were soon producing lovely prints on various materials and I was pleased with my efforts which I took home. Class size is small so you get plenty of attention and it is a lovely venue.
