BLOCK PRINTING LAMPSHADE WORKSHOP IN WEST WICKHAM
Wednesday 6th February 2019, 10:30 - 12:30
Venue: Emma's Pottery Parlour, 05 Station Road, West Wickham, BR4 0PX
The session will start with rummaging through our huge choice of printing blocks. Once you’ve chosen your selection you’ll then be given a full and detailed demonstration on how to block print. We'll start printing onto practice cards and fabric, perfecting your printing and working through a mixture of techniques like colour mixing, repeat design printing, random printing, and more.
You will build up a selection of practice pieces experimenting with different techniques, and a range of colours getting an idea as to what patterns you will want to use, we will also show you what you can make from these squares of fabric for framed artwork and cards.
We then look at moving onto printing onto your lampshade. We will guide you with the full making of your lampshade, ready for use. You can choose from a 20cm or 30cm size shade. Further items are available to purchase on the day if you wish to extend your creations.
This workshop is suited for all abilities, whether you have printed before or not this workshop is for everyone. Indian Block Printing does not require you to be artistic or creative, it’s suitable for everyone so don’t be put off if you think you need to come with lots of ideas because you don’t! We help you get started and create a lovely piece.
