Workshop - Create your own Block Print on Fabric

This is a one day workshop for adults - limited to 10 places.

Using the estuary as inspiration, learn to create a linoblock which will repeat seamlessly across a length of fabric.  In the morning, you will create a design to trace onto a linoblock.  For those unsure of drawing, templates will be provided.  Seagulls, crabs, fish, boats (even the anchor!) all make fabulous motifs.

Next comes the linoblock carving and, in the afternoon, you can ink up your block with a colour of your choice and stamp across sample fabrics to your heart’s content!  Eventually with confidence you can print a tote bag.  At the end of the day, you will come away with a linoblock to use again, sample fabrics for any craft project, a finished tote bag and skills to create your own patterns in the future.  Very satisfying and great fun.
