Indian Block Printing with Anne Kelly - Saturday 2nd November 2019
Saturday 2nd November 2019 10am - 4pm
Working with wooden printing blocks on fabric creates a very personal and textural effect for your projects. It is easy and enjoyable to print and make a piece of work using this technique. Using a selection of Anne’s and your own printing blocks and rubber stamps you will create a ‘Tree of Life’ themed textile collage. Anne has observed first hand the printing block technique and production in India and has also been inspired to design her own blocks. You will receive a list of any materials you need to bring with you closer to the time*.
INCLUDED: Materials* and equipment provided a lovely homemade lunch, cake and refreshments to keep you well fuelled through out the day!
