Block Carving & Printing on Fabric
Instructor: Jeanne Brady
This workshop is an introduction to the art of relief block carving and printing on fabric; perfect for quilters or painters wanting to expand their creative options! Demonstrations & specific exercises teach skills in designing, cutting blocks, and printing using transparent pigments with infinite color mixing options. Printing will be explored on a variety of surfaces from basic yardage to T-shirts, bandanas, and scarf blanks. Explorations in registration, color overlays, and creative approaches supported by many examples of designs add to the flow of ideas. Participants will receive valuable information and handouts. Carving is done with a basic set of inexpensive tools that last a lifetime. The pigments are water-based, non-toxic, and permanent when heat set. Beginner and Beyond
