Fabric Block Printing-Virtual Workshop with Speedball Demo Artist, Susana McDonnell
October 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
In this three hour virtual workshop we will learn the full process of designing, carving and printing on fabric. I will suggest that a tea towel is a great place to start, but a piece of quilting fabric would be just fine too. Any PRE-WASHED fabric item that lays flat and does not have any ruffles, textures or darts will work. We will go through the entire process together and I will teach you all of my favorite top tips.
