In this basic printing workshop, we will explore the art of relief printing by learning how to create your own, unique block for printing designs on fabric. Instructor will include a demonstration on how to use lino tools to carve a block. Each participant will use their finished block later in the session to handprint a cotton tea towel and/or tote bag. All materials used are non-toxic and eco-friendly. We’ll be using water-based inks and latex-free carving blocks. No experience is necessary! This will be an introduction to block printing by hand. You will leave the session with a completed item and carved block ready for additional printing. Please bring a photo or simple drawing of the image you would like to carve and print. Please wear old clothing! Aprons will not be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Materials fee – $15, payable to instructor.
