In this half day workshop based in the inspiring Artique surrounded by exciting products from Asia, you will learn to use traditional block printing techniques to create stunning designs. I will set the scene by showing you some examples of authentic block printed fabric, photos taken in Sanganer, Jaipur of block printing in progress and explain the process of producing the intricate designs on the woodblocks. My collection of over 60 blocks are a mixture of old and new many collected travelling around India, and all of them beautiful to use.
After a demonstration we will begin to print onto tissue, which makes wonderful wrapping paper for special gifts and then print onto paper and card which you can take home to use as special gift wrapping , tags and cards. After a break you can choose your favourite block to print onto a fabric item eg napkin, apron, bag or tea towel or you are welcome to purchase some linen (£7.50 for a half metre, enough for a cushion or table runner ) that can be printed and taken home to make a cushion or bag.
Wood blocks will also be available to purchase from Artique’s extensive collection.
