In this full day class students will explore the world of block printing on fabric and paper. We will design and carve print blocks and experiment with printing them on different materials. Students will learn how to print blocks using one or more colors. There are so many wonderful things that can be created! Students are encouraged to bring some ready made objects (napkins, tea towels) so they can leave with a completed project. The goal for this class is for students to feel comfortable with the basics of printing on fabric and paper so they can continue printing at home.

Instructor: Krista Skrede bio
Materials fee: $25
Materials provided by instructor: Ink, linoleum cutter, print blocks, paper, small amount of cotton fabric, some ready made items, note cards and handouts.
Materials students should 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. Students should also bring T pins, tape, ruler (clear quilting ruler is best), pencil, scissors, X-acto knife, sharpie marker, inspiration material. Some ready made objects like t-towels, napkins, cards, etc. to print on.
