9th Dec: BEGINNER’S BLOCK PRINTING: CREATE YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS STOCKING
Learn the art of block printing in this two hour workshop hosted by Louisa Loakes at our Notting Hill farmshop. You’ll gain a basic understanding of the technique of block printing before getting hands-on to create your own printed stocking.
Using the festive season for inspiration, you’ll carve your own simple lino block which will be used for your pattern repeat, practicing with it before printing on your stocking. By the end of the class, you’ll not only have an understanding of the block printing process, but you’ll have created a unique stocking to hang over your fireplace this Christmas.
