About this Workshop:
Many people know about screenprinting on fabric, but not many are aware that you can also make beautiful relief prints on fabric! Join us for a fun evening learning about the basics of printing relief blocks. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the carving process then choose and print any of the instructor’s prepared lino blocks. You’ll learn how to properly ink up the blocks and crank the press in creating their own Jun Lee designed printed t-shirt!
Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!
Registration closes May 16, 2023 and include a materials fee.
