About the event

Bring some colour into Spring and come to a Block Printing Workshop! Learn about printing pattern onto textiles with relief blocks.

We will use hand-carved wooden blocks from India, to explore pattern repeats. You will learn how to get the inking and the pressure just right and then create your own combinations of colour and motifs. First we will print onto a sheet of paper for gift wrap and then onto a tea towel.

The process of block printing is calming and meditative, and at the same time there's something really satisfying and exciting about gradually seeing a pattern grow on your fabric.

All materials and tools are included in the cost of this workshop. Items must be heat set at home with an iron, before washing (instructions will be provided). 

Tea, coffee and cake is also provided.
