Block Printing workshop
(Print your own calico tote bag)
Join me for a 3 hour workshop where we will create our own collection of beautiful printed designs onto fabric.
We’ll be using simple tools to make our own printing blocks and learn about pattern repeats.
A carefully curated colour pallet of textile inks will be provided for you to use during the workshop.
At the end of the workshop you take home printed samples on calico and a completed printed calico tote bag
Novice and experienced students are welcome.
Info: Once you’ve secured your spot we’ll be in touch closer to the date to provide any further info, in the meantime browse our Workshop FAQ’s (coming soon) for answers to those niggling questions.
The Artist: Katie is a textile artist, who works in her studio in West Auckland, where she is inspired by the wild mash-up of urban industrial spaces and the forest clad Waitakere ranges.
She loves synthesising these disparate influences into printable motifs.
Katie relishes in the uniqueness of hand printing and exploring its numerous possibilities. She graduated with an M.A in Textile Art from Goldsmiths University of London, in 1995, and prior to this, she studied textiles at Otago Polytechnic in Dunedin. She likes to keep her work simple, spontaneous and contemporary.
She loves sharing her knowledge and passion for textiles and has run numerous print workshops for adults and children.
