Sweet Relief: Block Printing on Fabric
Join us for a night of block printing with local artist Brie Thompson of Lake Effect Press. With a few simple tools you will learn how to design, carve and print a relief block onto fabric. You will leave the workshop with your own custom-printed tote bag as well as the knowledge and tools to work on projects at home. We’ll also put some ink on our beloved old Chandler & Price Letterpress. Everyone will get a chance to print a custom notebook too! All supplies, snacks, sips and some natural inspiration will be included!
