Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Learn how to block print fabric in this hands-on Sydney course. You will even take home your own creatively designed cotton scarf!

This course is perfect for beginners as no previous design or printing experience is required. You will learn to identify block printed fabrics and be introduced to a variety of methods to produce block prints on fabrics.

The course will begin with an overview of the ancient history and tradition of relief printing on fabric and then preparing the fabric, printing materials and equipment to get to work.

You will then learn how to cut a design on a lino block under the guidance of your instructor, which will allow you to move on to printing a cotton scarf on a combination of blocks, including authentic Indian woodblocks. Your instructor will also take you through multi colour printing.

At the end of the course you will take home your scarf and be confident in fabric block printing!

You are eligible for a 10% discount when you provide proof of enrolment at Tillys Art Supplies (Rozelle), Newtown Art Supplies, Eckersley’s Art Supplies (Sydney), and at Dans Art Design – enter code ‘SCC’ at the checkout.
