Repeat Pattern Block Printing
Saturday, April 29
Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. There is evidence that it existed as early as the fifth century BC, with actual fragments found from as early as the fifteenth century. It has been done around the world, with roots in India, China and Japan.
Join teacher Molly Meng where you will learn to design and carve your very own "block" for printing on fabric and paper. We’ll learn about transferring images, designing your own, building repeat patterns and you'll have a full introduction to the different kinds of supplies and tools that can be used in this exciting process.
All materials are provided.
(You may want to bring an apron and your glasses!)
As with any project that can be personalized, if you have a design you'd like to try, feel free to bring it with you, as well as anything in particular you might want to try printing on in class.
If you cannot make the class, you must cancel 48 hours in advance to receive credit for another workshop.
