Have fun getting your hands dirty - this Sydney workshop is the perfect introduction to the art of block printing!

Over three hours, Rebecca from Made by Me Workshop will guide you through the process of carving a rubber block to create stamps or blocks that can then be printed onto cloth to create an endless array of personalised items to share with your friends and family.

In this hands-on workshop participants will design and carve their own simple block design and then practise with it on paper before using it to create their own block printed linen tea towel or cotton tote bag (select when you book).

What you will learn:

  • How to design a simple block print
  • What tools are used for block printing and how to use them
  • How to safely carve your own piece of rubber
  • Techniques and tips for successful block printing
  • How to create a repeating pattern and apply this to a tea towel or tote bag to take home

Please note: in most workshops we require a minimum number of people to run our workshops and will do our absolute best to run every workshop we list but occasionally it is not commercially feasible to do so. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case, we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule.



Knowledge required
This workshop is perfect for beginners with no previous experience necessary. We will be using sharp tools so a steady hand and a cautious approach is always recommended.
 
What you'll get
  • An easy carve piece of rubber to create your block
  • Use of tools to carve your block
  • Use of equipment to print your carved block
  • A choice of a linen tea towel or cotton tote bag to print your design onto
  • Take home your completed rubber block and everything you have printed
What to bring
  • You may want to bring along any design inspiration or block printing references you have, we will have some simple designs that can be used as well as some inspirational images that participants can use to generate their ideas. If you do want to create your own design - just remember to keep it simple!
  • We provide everything you need for the workshop including an apron to protect your clothes. Don't dress to impress, we will be printing with fabric ink so it won't come out of your clothes if you make a mess.

Made By Me Workshop is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and adheres to COVID-19 government guidelines.

See additional precautions taken   

The safety and wellbeing of our participants is our highest priority and we will do everything we can to ensure their safety during our workshops.
In light of the current COVID situation in NSW we have updated our COVID safe plan and have decided that for the time being we will only be admitting people to workshops who can demonstrate that they have been double vaccinated or have a legitimate medical exemption. We are also asking all participants to wear face masks that cover your nose & mouth inside the studio, we have disposable P2 masks on hand for all resin workshops that you are welcome to use but we will need you to wear your own mask when you enter the studio.

Workshops are kept to small groups with no person to person contact required. We will be taking extra precautions to ensure all work surfaces, equipment and supplies are cleaned and disinfected before and after every workshop and that sharing of equipment is avoided much as possible.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns in this regard.

Five years ago Rebecca Doyle walked away from a high-pressure, corporate career and embarked on a year of crafting. With an education in Fashion and Textiles Design and a long and varied career in fashion, Rebecca hoped to restore her passion for creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind objects - Made By Me Workshop is the result of where this path led.

Rebecca loves to share the experience of creating balance through creativity and connection by crafting a beautiful object that only its maker could have made.

Made By Me Workshop run pop-up workshops including Resin Art, Free Form Weaving, macrame, Fibre Art, Terrarium Making and more in various locations around Sydney.
