Block Printing – Colouricious fabric design workshop

Would you and your textile group like to learn how to block print your own fabric? Jamie Malden MA BEd Hons is a textile tutor and has been teaching for over 30 years. Her passion is block printing and teaching. She is happy to travel any where and everywhere to teach groups how to use the Colouricious Wooden Printing Blocks to design unique fabric. These fabrics are wonderful for a wide selection of sewing projects. Look at the image below to be inspired to see what you can make with fabric that you have designed. All the printing blocks have been hand carved in India – have a look at the fascinating history of block printing

You can book a one, two or three day Colouricious block printing workshop.

Day One is learning all about the basics of block printing using pattern theory, composition and layering. All words that seem complicated but are very easy once you know how!

Day Two – you will learn how to combine the art of stencils and block printing accompanied by skills you learnt on day one of layering.

Day Three – takes you another step forward to learn the art of gelli printing – generally as a back ground, which then you will develop your own block printing style.

If this art form excites you, then all you have to do is contact Jamie Malden at colouricious@me.com to book your group
