I am available to teach custom block printing workshops via Zoom in lieu of an in-person gathering. This workshop can be fully customizable depending on what you would like to learn. I can teach block printing on fabric or paper, we can do a holiday theme or even print wedding items together! Chatting and socialization are welcome in these private workshops. The price is per student for a 3 hour workshop, minimum six students. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time before purchasing.
The supplies needed are listed below. I am able to create kits that can be shipped (shipping charges will apply) or to be picked up or delivered locally (metro Boston). A kit containing basic printmaking supplies starts at $65 per student and can be tailored depending on your needs (price will vary).
Supplies Needed (some Amazon affiliate links included):
Compass (only if interested in creating a geometric design)
Stamp pad (optional)
Little dish for collecting scraps
Paper or PRE-WASHED fabric item to print on, please have a couple of options to choose from, just in case.
Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink (I do not know of a substitute for this. you can buy individual colors or this starter set) Please take care to make sure you get the correct ink, I cannot guarantee results if you use a different ink.
A smooth, non-porous surface to roll ink out on, such as plexiglass or sheet glass, you can be creative here.
A padded surface is optional, but super helpful, discussed on my blog.
Pins (only if using a padded surface)
Soap and water
Sink (not a fancy one!) or basin
Old toothbrush or other soft-bristled brush
Newspaper/Scrap paper/junk mail
If you are starting from scratch this Speedball Fabric Block Printing Kit will save you a bit of money, but it only comes with black and white ink.
