Event description

Description

STARTS TUESDAY 23 APRIL 2019

A two-week introduction to block printing techniques on fabric. Beginning with organic shapes and moving onto stamps and lino blocks, you will learn how to set up a studio space, experiment with different ink brands and try out several different techniques to explore colour, shape and pattern. These techniques are easy to do at home and are perfect for creative fabric projects and clothes customisation.

You will leave with … fabric printed with a range of designs as well as the stamps and blocks that you can continue using at home.

Who is this workshop for? Beginners with no experience in printmaking and those with a little printmaking knowledge who would like to refresh their knowledge or adapt their style to work on fabric. Quilters, sewers and embroiders will also enjoy this class as will anyone with an interest in working with textiles.

Materials and equipment: All printmaking tools, equipment and materials will be provided. You will be provided with some plain white cotton to work on, but you should also bring additional fabrics to experiment with further (such as different coloured cotton or other natural fabrics). Please bring along your sketchbook and any special reference material, as it helps if you have some design ideas in mind to work from.

Important details: Group size is limited to 6 people to give you plenty of space to work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and to allow you good access to the press. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout the course. The workshop runs over two Tuesday evenings, beginning each day at 18:00. Please arrive five minutes before the first session for a cup of tea or coffee and introductions. The workshop will finish at approximately 20:30, depending on the complexity of your design and the speed at which you work.

Tuesday 23 April and Tuesday 30 April
