Block Printing Workshop
Millworks, Santa Barbara
THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2019
Block printing is one of the most ancient types of printmaking and an excellent way to make something beautiful by hand. We will provide custom designed blocks for you use to create a unique patterned textile. To warm up, we will hand print wall art and then create our own patterned tote bags. Printing — the simple act of repetition — helps us slow down and build mindfulness. You’ll be rewarded with your complex finished products that showcase this careful process. It’s an infinitely creative process made from the simplest of building blocks.
