Saturday 22nd June- Spring Summer Full Day Block Printing Workshop 10:00am-4:30pm held at The Studio, Middle Aston, OX25 5QL
Join us for a full day workshop and learn how to Block Print onto fabric and paper! Specifically working with our new Botanical Seed Head collection onto Organic Fabrics with Dusky colours, you will also have access to our full range of Indian Printing Blocks and colours.
The morning will start with rummaging through our hundreds of printing blocks, and selecting a mixture of designs which you would like to use, once you’ve chosen a selection of designs you will then be given a full and detailed demonstration on how to block print. We then start printing onto practice fabric, perfecting your printing and working through a mixture of techniques like colour mixing, repeat design printing, random printing, straight lines and more!
You will build up a fab selection of practice fabrics experimenting with different techniques, and a huge range of colours getting an idea as to what patterns you will want to use later on in the morning, we will also show you what you can make from these squares of fabric such as quilts, framed art work and cards! We then print a selection of paper products such as cards and gift tags!
We then look at moving onto printing ready made fabric items, we provide you with a Cotton Tea Towel, 2 small Drawstring Bags or Tote Bag, Cushion Cover or Scarf all from our Organic fabric range. We have a large choice of fabric blanks so you can swap items to what suits you and additional items can be purchased to print for a small fee if needed.
This workshop is suited for all abilities, whether you have printed before or not this workshop is for everyone! Indian Block Printing does not require you to be artistic or creative, it’s suitable for everyone so don’t be put off if you think you need to come with lots of ideas because you don’t! We have lots of samples and inspiration to help you get started!
You don’t need to bring anything to this workshop other than yourself and a packed lunch! Tea, Coffee & Cake will be provided!
After paying for your workshop we will email you a confirmation & more workshop details
