In this workshop we will mix traditional and contemporary methods of block printing with indigo dye paste. Students will learn how to design and carve their own relief block, how to create a paste with the indigo dye, how to mix the fix bath that bonds the paste to the fabric, and then how to put the indigo through the classic "reduction" process, so that it is permanent and colorfast. Two large tea-towels will be provided to each student, however they are welcome to bring their own t-shirts, tote bags, lor any other fabric to print on in class.


Level: Intermediate—previous relief printmaking experience is suggested, but not required.
