Upcoming Workshops & Events

Discover the joy of designing for two or more color block repeat prints on fabric. Begin with basic ideas on paper, transfer them to linoleum blocks you carve, and print on fabric with transparent textile pigments perfect for multi-color layering effects. Learn how to design for a two-color pattern, successfully ink and print your blocks, and print an array of items from start to finish. Take home tools, new skills, and confidence for future printing enjoyment.

Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

In this workshop, students will learn and explore the art of relief block carving and pattern printing on fabric. Students will learn how to design from simple sketches and shapes, successfully carve multiple linoleum blocks, mix a variety of color palettes, ink your blocks, and print an array of unique patterns on fabric using transparent non-toxic textile pigments with infinite color mixing options. Students will leave with a collection of their own hand printed textiles and carved blocks that they created from start to finish. Carving is done with a basic set of inexpensive tools that last a lifetime.
