Blockprinting on Textiles


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

We start with a a bit of history about the process and introduction to the materials, but then get right into carving!

Students should come with a 4" square image or two that you would like to work with. Simple designs work best, and then you can add detail as you carve away. If you have carved before, and are up for a challenge, mention you would like to do a two color design. Prepare artwork 2"x4" if you want to try it out.

A quick carve "Block" all tools are provided, as well as textiles samples pieces and papers. Students are welcome to bring your own materials to print on too, as it can get pretty addictive. This class is a lot of fun, and you will be able to leave with your block, so you can continue printing on your own!
