Cost: £60


Type: Workshop

A follow-up or introductory session for anyone who’d like to develop their block printing practice or are trying it for the first time. The class will cover block carving, pattern design and printing on textiles.

Kate will share her sources of inspiration using fabric samples and books from her personal collection. During the class you’ll design a pattern, carve a block and print your own cushion cover. This is a creative workshop using the ancient craft of block printing but with an opportunity to experiment. As well as straight forward repeats you can have a go at masking, overlaps, and printing with everyday objects. Kate will share her knowledge of inks and fabrics and point you in the direction of ethically produced and more sustainable materials.

Everyone will leave with a hand-printed organic cotton cushion cover, a carved block and the know-how to continue their block printing adventure!
