Block Printing Class: Paper & Fabric

This event is in the past

This is an in-person event
I tried block printing once. I got very into a snowflake design without any guidance or practice because how hard could it be? You cut a shape and print it! Blinded by my enthusiasm, I forgot to take into consideration that the resulting print is a mirror image of the carving. syadiloH yppaH, idiot. This week at Monster, textile artist Tiffany Smith-Fleischman will provide everything you need to successfully draw, carve, and print your own block print design on both paper and fabric. Once you get the hang of that, there will be enough time in the 2.5-hour class to experiment with patterning techniques, how you get different results with different kinds of inks and printing surfaces. Start the year with a new skill! Make your own cards! Stamp yourself a new tea towel! Maybe make some stickers and plaster them all over the city to see if you can get spotted in an upcoming edition of Jas Keimig's Sticker Patrol! Smith-Fleischman will also make sure you don't do anything backward, probably. by Stranger Arts Editor Megan Seling
