Experiment with a range of methods to create printed surfaces on fabric! In this class we'll learn some simple printing techniques and experiment with surface design on various fabrics. Techniques include block printing, stenciling, canning, and silk screen. Students will use the printing methods learned to transform tea towels, homegoods, clothing, etc. We'll even cover some basic sewing so you'll walk away with a beautifully finished project in addition to your printed samples
