What is block printing? Block printing is the relief process of printing on to fabric or paper using a hand cut block, made of wood, linoleum, or rubber blocks. After the block is carved ink is applied, and then it is printed. Hence the name block printing. In this class you will be learning how to create a simple design easy enough for carving. 
I will teach you to carve a rubber block using a speedball linoleum carving tool. Then learn how to roll and ink your block and correctly print on tea towels with fabric paint. The fabric paint is permanent and won't wash out. We will create many practice pieces on paper before committing to the towels. I will have black, blue, red, and green ink to use. In class you will receive 2 white cotton tea towels, and all supplies included for this lesson. These make a great gift for the holidays! Feel free to bring a beverage and snack to share.
