Join us at Stitching Kitchen to print fabric and textile items with Indian block printing. In this two hour Indian Block Printing experience you will get the opportunity to print a practice cloth and two blank items for your own needs as gifts or to fit your home decor. No stitching required for this workshop – do bring an apron and wear older clothes, we will be working with fabric paints which don’t wash out!!! This will be a lovely relaxed session, you will find you can create some lovely images using the Indian carved blocks and let your imagination run riot with the fabric paints. Indian block printing is easy to pick up so the session can be adapted to your needs, perhaps a party or for your social group. Your tutor will be Hannah, the owner of Stitching Kitchen. She set up the business in 2017 to share her passion and skills in all things involving textiles, fabric and threads. Her courses are relaxed and fun and held in her home based studio which forms part of her Kitchen. You will receive a warm welcome and tea/coffee and home made cake!
What's included in the price?
During the day you will have full access to Hannah's extensive collection of hand carved Indian blocks and you will be provided with plenty of colour choices of textile paint. Hannah will start by demonstrating the technique and will be on hand to help with the process of printing and with design ideas for your finished pieces. You will start with a practice piece of fabric to develop your technique then print up two items to take home, typically a tea towel and tote bag.
