We currently run Block printing onto fabric workshops using a range of media – Indian hand carved wood, acrylic and rubber. We love to experiment with different media so if you have any ideas which you would like to try out then let’s give it a go.

 

Looking forward to later in 2018/2019 we are very excited to let you know that we will be running screen printing workshops using various techniques such as Thermofax screens as well as hand cut paper stencils. In addition, we will be running workshops using the Cyanotype process (solar/UVA powered photography) to create a stunning image on fabric then combining this with Indian Hand Block printing techniques to make a genuinely individual item.

Had an absolutely fantastic relaxing day. Anna was a fabulous teacher, she made the workshop so interesting she gave a lovely talk about the background to block printing and showed us a video on how the blocks were made. We started with practising using the blocks and then we could pick what we would like to print. Anna gave me a huge piece of fabric that I had such fun using a variety of blocks and colours. I’m going to use my fabric to make some project bags. I must also mention Miriam who also helped and nothing was too much trouble in cleaning my blocks she was a little star. Lunch was lovely as well. Just the perfect day. Thank you again ladies I’ll be back!!
