*This workshop is for advanced printers or students who have previously taken the introductory pattern block printing on fabric workshop.
This advanced pattern block printing on fabric workshop teaches students how to create a two color repeating pattern. The traditional method of block printing textiles is finding new life in contemporary art and design, giving fabrics a tactile, handmade look. Students will learn about creating motifs and repeat patterns, and will carve their own designs onto linoleum blocks. In-studio printing techniques will be taught, and students will get to test their images on fabric in class. Students are encouraged to bring their own t-shirts, tote bags, linen towels, or any other fabric to print on in class, and they will each leave with a block design to reuse at IS Projects or at home.
