Kate Owens: Block print your own fabric (and dance if you want to!)

Sunday 2 June, 2019 at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Sun 2 Jun, 10.30am–12.30pm. 8 places. Ages 12+. Priced: £22 (+booking fee). Book via Eventbrite

This workshop takes a side-step from traditional block printing, replacing the print block with a wooden sandal and walking or dancing your design across the fabric. Participants will use body weight to transfer the ink to the cloth rather than the conventional mallet. You will design print-block sandals, use them to create repeat patterns and print a length of fabric that can be finished as a simple cushion cover. Organic cotton and Soil Association approved inks will be provided along with tools and materials to make the print-blocks.

This event is part of DesignMarket our annual design fair, packed with stalls and filled with the best contemporary print, jewellery, fashion and homeware.
