Event description
Beginner block printing workshop in Auckland. Draw, carve, ink, print. Create your own collection of beautiful printed designs on fabric.

About this event

Create your own collection of beautiful printed designs on fabric which will include a linen tea towel to take home. We will deep-dive into making pattern repeating designs.

Using simple but effective materials we will make a printing stamp and will also carve a printing block to use. A carefully curated collection of textile colours will be available for you to choose from and you will learn to think like a textile designer by taking inspiration from contemporary textile artisans.

All materials will be provided to use during the workshop. In the end, you will take home your printing blocks, several printed samples on cotton, and your completed printed linen tea towel.

This is a fun and creative class, and all levels of experience are welcomed

Organiser Smitten Design Workshops

Organiser of Beginner's Block Printing Workshop - Design a Tea Towel

Katie has been working with fabric in one way or another all her life. From clothes to interiors to conceptual art, she has always been fascinated by the power of fabric to transform places, spaces and people. Katie works in her studio in West Auckland, where she is inspired by the wild mash-up of urban industrial spaces and the forest clad Waitakere ranges. She loves synthesising these disparate influences into printable motifs.She relishes in the uniqueness of hand printing and exploring its numerous possibilities. She graduated with an M.A in Textile Art from Goldsmiths University of London, in 1995, and prior to this, she studied textiles at Otago Polytechnic in Dunedin. She likes to keep her work simple, spontaneous and contemporary. She loves sharing her knowledge and passion for textiles and has run numerous print workshops for adult and children. www.smittendesign.co.nz
