Block printing specialists - online craft supplies, workshops & textile holidays
Learn about Lutradur
Lutradur is a non woven polyester material that has found its way into the crafting world. It is perfect for painting and printing on and dyeing. It can be stitched to your crafting projects or collaged and affixed with bondaweb. It lets you create some wonderful patterns and projects and adds depth and texture as well.
Colouricious can show you lots of different ways to use Lutradur in your next craft project and we have a page dedicated to this wonderful fabric on our website.
We have a number of videos showing popular crafters such as Ineke Berlyn actually using Lutradur. Our Lutradur DVD has proved to be very popular and is out of stock at the moment, however, you can still watch an excellent video of Ineke on our You Tube Channel.
We have a range of vintage stamps on sale which are unique, one-off pieces. They are old blocks from India and were actually used by block printers in their former life. If you are interested in a block that has a history then take a look at them here.
If you are still in need of some last minute Christmas presents then our gift vouchers are the perfect thing for you. They can be with you within three days and can be ordered right up until 22nd December. They can be used to buy any of the wonderful products we have on our website and would make the perfect Christmas gift for the crafters in your life. Check them out here.
The Stencil Shop
We have a wonderful selection of Balzer Stencil Art Designs that have proved to be very popular with the Colouricious Club members. If you use stencils or are interested in learning how to use stencils on your block printing projects then this is the place to go.
The shows for 2014 have all finished now and we are planning our calendar for the 2015 shows. We will be updating our website and keeping you all informed of the shows we will be attending as soon as they are all confirmed.
Block Printing Workshops – More Workshops – Easier to Book!
If you are interested in making books, then we have the perfect workshop for you. Colouricious is organising two, day long courses in how to make your own book, combining the art of block printing to make book covers and patterned pages. You will spend the day learning how to block print papers and fabrics. Then you will transform these beautiful prints into fabulous books. In one day you will learn how to stitch together and create your own books using materials that you have produced yourself. Our courses are scheduled for:
Wednesday 7th January
Friday 16th January
If you are interested in attending this workshop then take a look at the Book Printing Workshop page of our website. Click on the booking tab and from there you can choose the date you want to attend and then make payment.
We have courses arranged for all of our workshops and we are planning on creating more workshops as well in 2015.
This is our last newsletter before Christmas, so I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope the festive season will bring you lots of inspiration for all things crafting.
Learn, Create, Be Happy!
