THE NEW CRAFTSMEN
Block-printing with Louisa Loakes
Join textile artist Louisa Loakes for a block-printing workshop. Choosing from a selection of blocks, participants will use charcoal to experiment with mark making – rubbing and cutting onto paper to find their very own unique abstract composition before cutting onto their own block. During the workshop enjoy experimenting with the carved block, twisting and turning until you reach a design you are happy with. In this workshop participants will learn how to cut a linoleum block, transfer it onto natural linen and to create a simple pattern repeat for your own printed linen cushion cover.
