Come join Emily Ruth Prints to learn how to design and carve your very own block for printing on fabric! Students will learn the block printing process from start to finish and will come away with a set of 6-100% cotton napkins. Block printing on fabric is a fun and therapeutic printmaking process and a skill you can use for years to come.
Emily has been block printing for 8 years, and the textiles she designs for her business Emily Ruth Prints use the block printing process. You can see more of her work at www.emilyruthprints.com
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on. The inks we will use are water-based and wash off of non-porous surfaces, but may stain clothing!
Optional: Students may bring books, photographs, or other images for inspiration. Emily will also have a few books available to get those creative juices flowing.
