Fabric printing with Linocut Blocks
As some may know, I make lampshades with linocut block printed fabric. This session will be an introduction to the fabric printing process, with an introduction to simple repeat patterns, block cutting, inking the block and printing on to a small section of fabric using screen printing ink. All materials and tools supplied.
You will take home your own small linocut printing block and some pieces of your own printed cotton fabric. I will of course have some examples of printing blocks and fabric designs but if you have anything particular in mind for your design, please bring it along. I will also have a lampshade kit to show as well.
This is a very quick introduction to a fascinating topic which can lead you in all sorts of directions, such as making lampshades, cushions, tote bags etc. – I will give details of my suppliers and suggestions of what to do and where to go next!
