Learn the art of colographic and block printing and create your own unique tote bag design. During this course we will be using a traditional method of textile printing, known as block printing. You’ll create your own original ideas by experimenting on pieces of calico with fabric paints, pens, crayons and explore new techniques.
No previous experience is needed, just your desire to have a go! You’ll even get to make your own blocks from a variety of recyclable materials. Then you’ll proceed onto printing your own truly unique design onto a tote bag to take shopping or give as a present to someone special.
About the tutor
Being born in Colchester, I studied at Colchester Art School & then went on to do my Degree at Winchester School of Art. I have always had a love of history and where things come from. I enjoy working with lots of different textures, mediums and colours. I feel really lucky to live and work in such a beautiful place, along the River Stour and the surrounding areas of Flatford and Dedham.
The Stour’s wildlife and nature is abundant both on, in and along its’ banks, now being recognised as an “Area of Outstanding Beauty”. Great for a local Artist like me, for inspiration all year round!
