Hand Block Printing / Lino Cuts for Textiles

Member: Ginn Downes
An exciting textiles printing technique

Course Overview

This is a traditional, textiles printing technique, which can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities. It’s fun and absorbing and produces surprisingly quick and unique results.

After experimenting with authentic Indian wood blocks, pre-cut and bought blocks, you will be guided on how to create a unique design and how to cut your own lino block. You will be shown basic repeat patterns and produce your very own original prints. Your personal block is for you to take away and can be used many times over for printing onto fabric or paper.
