During this workshop students discover the art of traditional relief block carving and printing to create multi-layered hand printed fabrics. Through demonstrations and exercises you will create a design, transfer it to the block and carving, and print on fabric using high quality, water-based textile pigments. Participants also explore variations in registration, color overlays and detailing. During class you will learn that textile pigments are permanent and extremely versatile. Carving is completed with a set of tools that last a lifetime. This class is for beginner to intermediate levels.
