Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in attending the fabric printing workshop this Saturday.
Block Printing on Fabric: Design and Print a Unique Spring Scarf
Saturday, April 27, 3 - 6 p.m., $60, materials included.
Carve your own unique design into soft rubber, then use fabric inks to print the design on a jersey-knit scarf.* Participants walk away with a hand-carved stamp, for continued use on fabric or paper, and two block-printed scarves that are ready to wear after a quick iron.
*Feel free to bring additional fabrics to print on as well!
All experience levels welcome!

How are you applying the ink to the block? I bought some Versatex for my prayer flag project, but could not get it to where I could use a brayer. Do you use a modifier? I've painted it to the block with a sponge brush before, but this was too large a project for that!

I'm a woodblock printmaker who is committed to a non-toxic (or less toxic) art practice. I started out as a painter but found my way to printmaking through a love of paper and process. I seem to be falling for papermaking in the same way. I went to Syracuse University, where I studied painting (BFA) and museum studies (MA). I was a Resident Artist at the Howard County Center for the Arts for five years and previously worked at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. This blog is for posting works-in-progress and new works, as well as a few creative projects I've done with my kids.
