Join Corowa creative Cate Barlow for a day learning the basic techniques of Block Printing. Cate will demonstrate & discuss different techniques for block printing on various materials (including fabric, paper & hard surfaces like walls) in the morning, while encouraging participants to begin creating some simple designs of their own for their printing project.
This will be followed by a very hands on session where participants will be guided by Cate from the beginning with making their own simple blocks if they chose (alternatively they are welcome to use Cate’s blocks), through to completion of their own printed project to take home.
Printing projects for the day will include the option of printing a cushion cover, tea towel, apron, pillowslip, or a fabric panel to use for making something unique at a later time. Participants are welcome to bring their own item to print if they would prefer.
All materials used on the day will be supplied as part of the cost of the workshop, and participants will come away not only with new skills, but also with a cotton tote bag to print on at a later time, containing Cate’s instruction sheets and the basic equipment required for creating unique printing blocks and continuing on with printing projects in the future.
This promises to be a fabulous day experiencing the great joy of hand printing.
