Wednesday 3rd July- Half day Workshop Block Printing Scarves. Workshop times: 10am – 2pm at The Studio, Hatch End Old Poultry Farm, Middle Aston, OX255QL
Spend the morning at our studio and learn how to block print, and hand print your own cotton scarf! This workshop is suitable for all abilities, we will have on offer our full range of printing blocks and fabric paints for you to play with. The workshop will be focused on creating a design to print onto your scarf, but we will also have our full range of Fabric Blanks on offer if you would rather create something else.
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 your selection you’ll 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!
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, checking that your design will fit onto the scarf.
Once you are confident with printing and happy with your design we will move onto your chosen fabric item. We provide the materials and will have a choice of cotton scarves for you to choose from.
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’ll be free to play with all types of designs and colours!
You don’t need to bring anything to this workshop other than yourself. Tea, Coffee & Cake will be provided!
