Harvest Themed Block Printed
Tote Bag
Thursday, October 19
7pm to 9:30pm

Join us in creating fun harvest themed block prints on fabric. No experience necessary. Block printmaking methods have been used for centuries to create images for illustrations, fine arts and textile designs. During the 18th century artisans were inspired by textiles that came from the Far East. They learned to use intricate block prints to create beautiful fabrics. In this workshop we will explore simple techniques used to cut linoleum blocks and print them on fabric tote bags
