Workshop de Block Print – Porto

Yesterday was the first edition of the handprinted textiles workshop focusing on the Block Print technique. It was a very coveted workshop and I was already asked to launch it a long time ago. I think I was putting off by the complexity but mainly by the fear to ask  the participants to draw freely. I wanted this workshop to integrate this challenge of drawing something for the stamp design. On the other hand, the carving of the “block” by those who do not have any experience with the tools, also seemed to me as very risky …

But everything happens when we have overcome our fears and here was no exception. Apart from one or other wound in the fingers, all participants developed their design and got their stamp with great quality. With this stamp various types of patterns were tested and a two-color tote bag was also stamped.

Soon I will show you more of this workshop!
