Are you having trouble achieving consistent and rich results on fabric? It is probably because 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.

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 susana@linocave.com 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 susana@linocave.com to request that I record it.
