Want to learn to design and print your own designs on fabric? Sign up for this block printing workshop with artists Amanda and Sadia, and learn how to block print on fabric as you create a custom tote bag. In this 3 hour session, you will learn how to carve simple printing blocks and transfer your designs onto fabric. We will provide all the materials: linoleum blocks, carving tools, printing ink, and a plain cotton tote bag. You’ll leave with your own, custom-printed tote bag. We will be exploring Valentines Mansion gardens for inspiration for your designs. This workshop is part of ArtLab - a collaboration between the mansion’s resident artists Amanda Seljubac and Sadia Ur-Rehman who will be bringing their creative skills and expertise to a series of 10 workshops throughout the year to celebrate ten years of the mansion being open to the public.
