Online Workshop 5/4: Beginning Block Printing

This online workshop takes place on Tuesday, May 4th, from 5-7 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop. 

Are you bored with plain t-shirts, white kitchen towels, and blank pillows? Are you itching to make custom printed cards, artwork, or wrapping paper? Learn the basics of block printing in this fun-filled workshop!

Everyone will learn how to carve a rubber block/stamp with their design, apply ink, and print! This class will focus on printing on fabric, but the techniques learned can translate to many other materials, like paper, clothing, and wood. Once you learn, you won't want to stop! The possibilities are endless and make great gifts!

Choose from two booking options:

1. Supply your own materials! You will need a lino cutter, a rubber printing block, an ink pad, paper, and a pencil for this workshop.

  • 1 Wooden Lino Handle

  • 1 4" x 6" Speedy-Carve Block
