Block Printing Workshop


Come learn the creative techniques of block printing! Wood block printing on wallpaper become famous in France at the end of the 18th century. ZUBER & Cie claims to be the last factory in the world to produce woodblock printed wallpapers and furnishing fabrics...oh to get into that basement!
On Saturday, April 30th we will learn how to carve an image on a rubber block, what kind of inks to use and how to print an image on paper and fabric. Join artist Laura Palm as she teaches us about this antique method used to print text, images or patterns on textiles and paper. Bring in your own image to transfer onto the block or design your own in class - maybe you'll be inspired to print a roll of wallpaper!
Sign up here for this new French General workshop.

I love all the workshops you are having at French General. It is such a wonderful space and an inspiration to me in re-designing my shop.
