BLOCK PRINTING ON FABRIC : PARENT-CHILD ALSO WELCOME!

Description

School Holidays - spend some quality time with your child and make a memorable piece of functional art! My daughter loves to print with me and has asked me to design this workshop for little people like her...

Printing is lots of fun - for everyone!

Learn to create handmade washable fabric using the soft-carve block printing technique! Perfect for beginners, this workshop is filled with practical and easy ways to print at home. Choose from a select range of patterns or bring along your own design to carve into soft linoleum. Print using colourfast inks in a variety of colours to produce a customised piece of fabric.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a beautiful fabric length. You'll also take home your hand-carved block for future projects - cards, gift wrap or even wallpaper! Handprinted material in this unique workshop can easily turned into a 'furoshiki' wrapping cloth, a non-sew cushion cover or simply a great wall decoration.

No prior experience is necessary. Class sizes are kept small for effective learning.

Peranakan tile inspired design!
