About the Class
Have you ever wanted to design your own fabric? Learn how to make your own block printed fabric with this fabulous set of workshops. You will learn the tips and techniques needed to design your own block using rubber blocks and linoleum cutters. In the first evening, we will focus on pattern design elements and how to create repeat patterns. The second night of class will center on printing on fabric with your hand-made rubber blocks and a selection of colour paints specifically designed for printing. You choose what pattern network you would like to create on your very own meter of fabric! Then take it home to start sewing your own tote bag, dopp kit, tea towel, cushion, or basic tank! There are so many options for your newly designed piece of fabric.
Class fee includes:
- 7 hours of class time.
- A kit containing 1 meter of pre-washed fabric and carving rubber.
- Treats and refreshments throughout the class.
- The use of our class tools, paints, and other necessary notions - there is no need for you to bring anything!

This class is designed for everyone! No experience is necessary.
