Basic Block Printing Experience Required
Bring your pre-carved block, your inks, tools and a fabric item or printmaking paper to print and let's spend 90 minutes learning my signature ombré technique, a method of creating a multi-colored print using a single block, brayer and plexi. We will discuss ink ratios and color combinations that work well together. Please note: there is NO carving or designing in this workshop, just printing.
If you have any questions please email me. Please use an email address and not a phone number when checking out so that I can email you the Zoom link.
A Zoom link will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org either the day before or the day of class.
If the timing of this workshop doesn't work for you I can record it for you and send it to you after I receive it from Zoom. Please register and email me at email@example.com to request that I record it.

A PRE-WASHED fabric item (if you are printing on fabric) you would like to print that doesn't have texture, ruffles or darts.
Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink only if printing on fabric or your favorite ink for printing on paper. Please choose three colors analogous on the color wheel. Yellow, orange and red work best, but blue, violet and red also work well. If you are experienced with block printing with screen printing ink, you may use that, but I am not qualified to troubleshoot it.
Smooth surface for rolling out ink such as plexi, acrylic or sheet glass
Palette knife or similar.
Padded surface if printing on fabric. This will help you achieve better results on fabric. 10+ layers of old sheets, a doubled over fleece blanket, a non textured old towel or two layers of a non-textured upholstery/thick fabric are examples. Should not be super squishy. Clamps help secure your padded surface to the table.
Your favorite printmaking paper if choosing to print on paper.
