In this class, students will create richly coloured prints on fabric using linoleum, woodblocks, rollers, and letterpress blocks. We will cover some of the challenges of printing on fabric versus paper, and use pre-cut blocks and other print matrices to experiment with printing on fabrics both by hand and in a printing press. You will go home with at least one beautifully printed .5 metre piece of fabric to enjoy as is or to use in future projects.

All materials are included. Students will be able to choose from a selection of fabrics that we have on hand in the studio (some plain colours, and some from printed yardage).

In this class you will learn the basics of how to create a silkscreen for printing your own design on tea towels. The first part of the class will focus on different ways to create silkscreen positives and preparing your artwork for exposing onto a screen. We will then expose your artwork onto a screen, and after a short break you will print your own single colour design on your towels! To save time, we won’t be covering coating the screen with photo sensitive emulsion, which needs to cure for 24 hours before exposing artwork, but if you catch the screenprinting bug, you can easily catch up on this part later in a private instruction session!

All materials are provided, and no experience is necessary. The class runs for two weeks on Wednesday evenings, July 18 and 25, from 7-9:30pm.

These lusciously patterned sheets were traditionally used in bookbinding, but you can also use your finished papers in scrapbooks, collages, greeting cards, or even just framed for the wall! All materials are provided, and you will create between…
