Blockprinting is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and is still widely practiced throughout the world. Artisans working within this rich tradition create beautiful designs in relief, and print each design element by hand, creating wonderful variation that looks beautifully handmade. Blockprinting is a great way to instantly personalize fabrics, stationery, and much more to create individualized decor. In this interactive workshop, students learn the techniques of blockprinting through designing and carving their own simple design into a block, and then using paint to apply the carved block to fabric or paper. Instruction will include choosing a design that yields the best end result.
