"GREAT TO HAVE LEARNT JULIA'S FOOLPROOF METHOD OF BLOCKPRINTING AND ALSO, THE NUMEROUS POSSIBILITIES OF USING THIS TECHNIQUE FOR CREATIVE TEXTILES. JULIA IS ALWAYS SO GENEROUS IN SHARING HER AMAZING COLLECTION OF WOODEN BLOCKS AND SPACE-DYED FABRICS. THANKS FOR PASSING ON THAT SKILL AND THE USEFUL TIPS.
EVER GRATEFUL"......JUDITH GIBSON
A glowing endorsement recently received from a very happy customer who recently attended one of my Block Printing Workshops.
The following are a range of prints that you can expect to achieve on a basic "Introduction to Block Printing" workshop. Pattern theory including chequerboard, rotation, half drop and masking techniques, as well as layering using light and dark fabric paints. Thank you Aylesbury Vale Embroidery Group for the images taken at the end of a very successful workshop last weekend! This is what Sue Robinson thought of the session:-
"What a lovely day we had! Julia made sure that we had all that we needed to produce a range of lovely prints on her beautifully dyed fabrics. Julia brought along her impressive selection of wooden blocks and lots of printing paints for us all to use, we were spoilt for choice! Thanks for everything Julia. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and learned a lot."
