It’s no secret that we are leading busier lives and living in smaller spaces which makes the need for a venue where you can get your hands dirty, make a mess and create something even more important. Koskela workshops are run by a range of masters in their craft and cover everything from weaving to kids workshops.
Block Printing with Micaela Christie
Learn how to create and print your own custom fabric, inspired by the rich tradition of hand-carved block printing.
In this fun 3 hour workshop, you’ll learn how to design and carve your very own printing blocks, then print these onto fabric and paper.
Based on traditional wood block printing but with a contemporary twist, the rubber you’ll use to make your blocks is soft and pleasurable to carve. You’ll print on beautiful linen and cotton with water based, non-toxic textile inks.
Micaela will teach you how to develop and translate your design ideas into printed fabrics that can be transformed into cushions, quilts, and tableware, stationary or original artworks – perfect to gift or keep!
