Bags + Blocks with Jacqui Symons

23 March 2022 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An image of geometric shapes printed onto canvas to show what can be made in the workshop

Print your own fabric bag with a block-print repeating pattern using natural dye colour. Have fun designing geometric shapes and make them into printing tools using fun foam and wooden blocks, before printing onto a fabric tote bag. This is a simple technique that needs little equipment and is easy to repeat at home. No prior skills or experience necessary.
