Block Printing Open Studio!

Time: 12PM - 3PM
Location: Blackbird Fabrics Studio, 1330 Napier Street, Vancouver BC.
About the Class
Let your creatively flourish in this self-guided block printing open studio afternoon. Update already-loved items in your wardrobe with modern and exciting surface design techniques - bring in any woven garment or fabric that needs an extra zhooshing up (white, cream, or lighter colours work best with our paint system). Or, start fresh with blank accessories that are perfect for your home or wardrobe. Begin the printing process using pre-carved blocks from the Blackbird printing library so you can spent more time designing and creating your perfect patterns! This class will help you through the full design process of block printing, including:
- creating unique and stylish designs
- learning about pattern repeat networks
- the process of loading and printing with pre-cut rubber blocks
- colour theory for mixing the perfect paint colour
You will get hands-on experience printing with blocks without having to go out and purchase all of the paints and supplies for your home studio - we will have all of that ready for you! Meet new surface design buds while creating your one-of-a-kind dream woven tee, bandanna, tea-towel, or tote bag!
Class fee includes:
- 3 hours of class time.
- Snacks and refreshments throughout the class.
- The use of our class tools, paints, and other necessary notions - bring your own fabric or purchase blank items during checkout to use during the class.
- A 15% discount coupon to use for a future purchase.
This class is designed for everyone! No experience is necessary.
