Block Printing for Beginners with Jennie Lennick

Bored with plain T-shirts, white kitchen towels, and blank pillows? Itching to make your own printed cards, artwork, or wrapping paper? Learn the basics of block printing in this fun-filled workshop! Everyone will learn how to carve a rubber block/stamp with their own design, apply ink, and print. Each attendee will get to choose from a tea towel or a tote bag plus lots of paper greeting cards to print on.

In this class, we will focus on printing on fabric, but the techniques learned can translate to many other materials, like paper, clothing, and wood. Once you learn, you won't want to stop! The possibilities are endless and make great gifts! All materials are included and every student will leave with their custom block and their finished projects.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a materials fee of $10, payable at the start of class. (Nonmembers, this is included in the price of your ticket.)
