Requires Basic Fabric Block Printing Experience
Ever wonder why you were able to print something beautifully on one type of fabric and it is grainy and light on another? There is an infuriating answer to that—every fabric prints differently. In this 90 minute workshop we’ll bring our favorite block, inks and brayers, and scraps of different fabrics and work through inking for different fabric types to achieve optimal results on all! Note: there is no design or carving in this class, just practice of inking techniques.

A variety of fabric scraps of varying textures and weights and a pre-washed item you would like to print at the end of class.
Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink only. Please note: I am not qualified to troubleshoot block printing with screen printing ink.
Smooth surface for rolling out ink such as plexi, acrylic or sheet glass
Palette knife or similar.
Padded surface. 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.
