Fabric Block Printing and Pattern Design: A Deep Dive

Taught by: Susana McDonnell

Workshop Fee: $625.00

 Explore the magic of designing and block printing your own fabric and fabric items. Start by creating designs on paper, transfer them to a rubber block you will carve, and print on fabric. Learn how to design patterns and make them repeat, how to optimize your inking, and fine-tune your carving skills. Leave with an array of your own hand-printed textiles you have created from start to finish and the knowledge to continue printing on fabric at home. All levels welcome.

Skills and Techniques:

  • Repeat Pattern Design
  • Carving
  • Printing Repeat Patterns
  • Multiple Inking Techniques


Materials Fee: Approximately $100 Paid directly to the instructor.

Special Tools or Equipment: Students may bring their own carving tools if they like, but instructor will provide if needed.
