Rhonda Ellem: Repeat Handblock Printing using Shaped Blocks 1-2 September @ Go Create New England

Repeat Handblock Printing using Shaped Blocks

Print your own fabric and paper by designing your own collection of shaped lino blocks! Create these blocks using positive/negative designs and learn to plan, cut and shape them for continuous block printing.

Over the weekend, you will be able to work from your own ideas or be guided through the steps of composition, image making and colour combining. There will be lots of scope for getting creative, for handblocking onto fabrics, gift wrap and wallpaper, making fat quarters and sharing ideas.

You will be supplied with lino, fabric inks and small lengths of wall and wrapping paper.

Kirsten Ingemar: Explorations of Sense of Place with Plant Dyeing, Imprints and Stitch 13-14 October @ Go Create! New England
Oct 13 @ 9:30 am – Oct 14 @ 4:00 pm
Kirsten Ingemar - Plant dyeing at Go Create! New England

Kirsten Ingemar – Plant dyeing at Go Create! New England

Through collected and found objects, plant material and internal processes we will explore the natural environment where we are. I will invite you to be drawn to places and things in nature and use these sensations as starting points to the mark making with natural dyes, and rust dyeing.

We will explore leaf imprints and other mark making with natural materials to integrate with hand stitching and collage. While the dye pots keeps simmering we will explore the possibilities in each sample as the pieces of cloth emerge. Let the marks and colours become starting points for the next step of the creative process.

Let yourself be stirred for more.
