Block Printing Workshops with House Sparrow Fine Nesting
Why settle for store-bought table linens when you can make beautiful, one-of-a-kind table linens using your very own beautiful, one-of-a-kind pair of hands? If you find yourself asking this question—and we all do from time to time—you need block printing, my friend.
In this workshop we work with basic block printing techniques and tools to create a table runner and a set of two napkins. You can make them matchy-matchy or complementary, and you can make them black and white or any color we can mix. We will use a variety of inks and printing blocks, some carved by yours truly, in combination with common, everyday objects.
All supplies are included are included in the class fee. If you have an object you think would make a beautiful fabric pattern, and you're OK with inking it (read: the type of ink we use doesn't wash off all surfaces), bring it!
The ink we will use is dry to the touch overnight, so please plan to pick up your projects the following business day after class. This ink will remain permanent through the wash after curing for 7 days.
Teens and adults. Space is limited; registration is required for this workshop. Sign up for the next block printing workshop here.
