One of the oldest forms of art, block printing is both historical and accessible, as it involves simply carving an image on linoleum blocks and using permanent fabric inks to print the designs on fabric.
Join Karen Rognsvoog, experienced folk school teacher, for an introduction to block printing on fabric. Learn how to carve your own design on to a linoleum block and then transfer (print) this design on natural fiber fabrics (cotton, linen and silk) to create napkins, table runners, scarves, or coasters. The class will cover design concepts such as pattern repetition, mirroring, color, shape. Students will leave with the objects created in class plus a new set of printing skills they can use in the creation of beautiful table cloths, printed fabric, or whatever and wherever their imagination leads them.
Students to bring:
- a very simple image/design that they are inspired by
- apron or old cloth that can get dirty
General Age Policy:
All classes are for adults (18+) unless otherwise noted.
