Explore the fun of surface design with wooden block printing and Thermofax screen printing. In addition to basic pattern theory you will learn which paints to use for which projects. In the morning, we will have lots of fun with pattern play and experiment with layering while we create unique fabrics and papers. In the afternoon all those wonderful bits will be collaged together to create a small Art Quilt. You can bring a sewing machine to free motion stitch your piece or skip the machine and stitch by hand.

• 1yard of fabric to practice printing on
• Wood printing blocks and thermofax screens for use in class
• MistyFuse Sheer Paperless fusible web
