Join us for a full day workshop and learn how to Block Print onto fabric and paper!
The day will start with rummaging through our hundreds of printing blocks, and selecting a mixture of designs which you would like to use, once you’ve chosen your selection you’ll then be given a full and detailed demonstration on how to block print. We then start printing onto practice fabric, perfecting your printing and working through a mixture of techniques like colour mixing, repeat design printing, random printing, straight lines and more!
You will build up a fab selection of practice fabrics experimenting with different techniques, and a huge range of colours getting an idea as to what patterns you will want to use later on in the day, we will also show you what you can make from these squares of fabric such as quilts, framed art work and cards! We then print a selection of paper products such as cards and gift tags!
We then look at moving onto printing ready made fabric items You will have a huge selection to choose from such as tea towels, cushion covers, tote bags, napkins, scarves, pencil cases, wash bags and more. You can select up to 2-3 items to block print and can purchase additional items for a small fee if needed.
This workshop is suitable for all abilities, whether you have printed before or not this workshop is for everyone! Indian block printing does not require you to be artistic or creative. It is suitable for everyone so don’t be put off if you think you need to come with lots of ideas because you don’t! We have lots of samples and inspiration to help you get started!
