Printing on Different Fabrics Clinic-Virtual Workshop
January 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Ever wonder why you were able to print something beautifully on one type of fabric and it is grainy and light on another? There is an infuriating answer to that—every fabric prints differently. In this 90 minute workshop we’ll bring our favorite block, inks and brayers, and scraps of different fabrics and work through inking for different fabric types to achieve optimal results on all! Note: there is no design or carving in this class, just practice of inking techniques.
