Rhonda Ellem: Repeat Handblock Printing using Shaped Blocks 1-2 September 2018

$260.00 $220.00

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.

Participants will be producing two carved lino blocks including one to be used as a half drop repeat, plus a sample book. No previous experience needed. Slightly different than the 2017 workshop.
