Block Printing Workshop
at Patch Halifax
March 2, 2019

Iā€™m returning to Patch this Spring for another great block printing workshop! I will guide you through the process of creating your own unique design and block printing your very own set of tea towels.   We will talk about elements of design, repetition and proper techniques for cutting your design in the linoleum block and then stamping it from block to fabric using fabric pigment. You may even get some stories from my recent block printing pilgrimage to India in between it all!

Class includes: 6 hours instruction sessions and complete supply kit, including paints and blocks.  Fabric extra.  Additional pigment dye will be available for purchase for future projects
