In this full day class students will explore the world of block printing on fabric. We will design and carve print blocks and experiment with printing them on different fabrics. Students will learn how to print blocks using one or more colors. There are so many wonderful things that can be created! The goal for this class is for students to feel comfortable with the basics of printing on fabric so they can continue printing at home.
Materials to bring:
Bring enough fabric (cotton, linen, knit) to experiment with printing. Please bring cellulose fabric, cotton and linen. This is to make sure you can heat set the fabric properly. Fabric should be lighter in color, tighter in weave (not gauzy) and not overly textured. Preprinted fabric is OK, but not ideal. Please make sure your fabric has been washed and ironed, you can also bring some card stock to make cards. T pins, tape, ruler (clear quilting ruler is best), pencil, scissors, X-acto knife, sharpie marker, inspiration material.
