Print Workshop

miscellaneousPosted by June Sun, May 22, 2016 23:40:18
At the recent Warner Textile Archive Textile Fair members of E.A.S.T ran a print workshop. The workshop was very successful, at one point people were queuing to take part. Participants made their own print blocks and printed onto the supplied fabric, one lady was so pleased with her printing she went home and made a lavender bag and cards.

Recently members of EAST enjoyed a collagraph workshop at Gainsborough House Print Studio in Sudbury.

Sue from the studio explained how to make the collagraph plate, basically a base board with a collage of items stuck to it , sealed with quick drying varnish, inked up and printed.

We were kept busy all day!!
