Blockprinting is a fun and easy way to apply repeat elements to fabric.
In this workshop, participants will explore blockprinting with Setacolor paint on 100% cotton fabric. Each participant will design, cut and print blocks with soft-cut linoleum.
In the morning, participants carve a small block and explore a variety of patterns and grids. This exploration informs the design, carving and printing of a larger block in the afternoon.
