Design and print your own quilting fabric! In this workshop, you will learn a printing process that requires only the space of your 24” x 36” cutting mat with tools that fit in a shoebox. In advance of the class, you will prepare drawings of your designs by using guidelines provided by the instructor. In the workshop, you will transfer designs and carve multiple blocks for printing. You will use a couple types of ink to print on various fabric substrates so you get a sense of the way different fabrics and inks work together. In addition, you will consider the spacing and scale of your patterns as you print at least three basic patterns. At the end of the class you will have your prints on fat quarters, charm squares, and hexies of light and dark Kona solids. For you to accomplish all this in the allotted time, it is imperative that you bring drawings of your designs that follow the guidelines provided.
