Friday 9th August- Studio Open Day & Workshop Sessions. 9:30am to 5:30pm
Come and visit us in Middle Aston, Bicester for a look around our wonderful studio & shop! We are having a special day to celebrate Block Printing running hands on (pay as you go) workshops as well as support to anyone who would like to learn more about Block Printing, learn how to do it and stock up on printing supplies!
Our BlockCraft shop will be open and fully stocked for you to come and visit, with several staff members on hand to help you with any printing advice you may need such as help with colour choices, which blocks work together and technical help! We will be running demonstrations throughout the day printing onto a range of Papers, Fabric and Clay and will be on hand to show you exactly how to block print and the important tips you need to know to make sure you get perfect prints each time. If you haven’t had a go at block printing yet we can let you know what you’ll need to get started! All our samples, new designs and current projects will be on display for you to see also so there will be and plenty of inspiration for you to take home! You’ll also get a chance to wander around our beautiful studio and get an idea of what we do here and the workshops we have on offer throughout the year!
If your just coming to look around, pick up supplies and have a chat you don’t need to book, you can just turn up. But if you want to come and do some Block Printing, please keep reading…
