Thursday 16th and 23rd September 2021
This course will enable you to explore the world of hand block-printing with natural dyes. Over 2 days we will be exploring how to mordant fabric, design repeat patterns, cut lino blocks, make print pastes with natural dyes and print our own fabrics.
We will explore the different properties of a range of natural dyes – we will be working with madder, cutch and iron and learn how to make the print pastes, apply them using printing blocks, print them on mordanted cloth and ensure they are fast. We will be printing onto both cotton & linen.
As a pattern-maker, textile printer and natural dyer – Sarah is passionate about slow, local production that creates beautiful fabric and is kind to our environment.
10am - 4pm
All workshops take place in our Bognor Regis Studio.
