Join me for an introduction to hand block printed fabrics. You’ll learn how simple carving and mark-making techniques can create fun and exciting patterns! You’ll be introduced to all the tools and materials needed for block printing at home. Through demonstrations you’ll learn how to; - create a repeat pattern design inspired by your sketches - transfer your design to your lino block - carve lino block using lino cutting tools - treat your fabric so it's ready for printing - repeat print your design onto fabric using eco-friendly textile inks. By the end of the workshop you will have a carved block and a selection of handprinted fabrics for crafting. This workshop is suitable for adults aged 16 years and above, beginners, improvers and those looking for some experimental fun! Please bring along your own designs and sketches, however this is not essential and there will be time for sketching. To protect your clothes please bring an apron or wear old clothing.
What's included in the price?
