This workshop introduces students to block printing on fabric. The instructor will show students how to use the tools and materials to make beautifully printed textiles. Block printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and is still widely practiced throughout the world. Artisans working within this rich tradition create beautiful designs in relief, and print each
design element by hand, creating wonderful variation that looks beautifully handmade.
