FT01 Edge to Edge: Repeat Block Printing

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday October 6

10:00 AM  –  5:00 PM

All levels                                         1 day

In this one-day intensive workshop, you will learn strategies for developing seamless repeating designs, and explore the way an individual block expands into dynamic edge-to-edge patterning. You will learn how to use textile pigments to print your original designs permanently onto fabric, which can be used for garments, quilting, or any other sewing project. You will hand-carve your own linoleum blocks which can be reused for future printing, and learn techniques for creating a registered repeat. You will leave the studio with colorfully printed fabric and all of the skills to continue doing this process at home!
