What we'll do

BLOCK PRINTING ON TEXTILES We start with a a bit of history about the process and introduction to the materials. Come with a 4" square image or two that you would like to work with. Simple designs work best. After a little discussion about how to carve and how your image will transfer, we get right into carving! A quick carve "Block" all tools are provided, as well as textiles samples and paper. You are welcome to bring your own materials to print on though. This class is a lot of fun, and you'll leave with your block, so you can continue printing on your own!
