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!

About Brie: Brie Thompson is a Portland-based printmaker and the owner of Lake Effect Press. She is the Treasurer of the member-run non-profit printmaking studio, Flight 64. Finding inspiration from the diverse landscape of the Pacific Northwest, Thompson examines the environment through hand-carved block prints and screen prints.
