Workshop Overview

Learn how to create repeating patterns and how to print those patterns onto paper and fabric. In this class we will learn the basics of block printing by carving rubber blocks, and we'll learn about different repeating pattern structures and how to construct them effectively. This knowledge can be applied to create things like patterned fabric for garments, card making, wallpaper, gift-wrap and much more. At the end of class, you will have a hand-printed set of napkins and many samples, including several carved blocks to print more at home.
