Block Printing Workshop

Block Printing Workshop

Join textile artist and fellow yoga student Violet Prihoda for a fun afternoon of block printing using authentic hand-carved blocks, hand-selected in India and Nepal ! Bring your own fabrics or paper:  t shirt, jeans, fabric, or other textiles, such as shopping bags and scarves, and/or blank greeting cards, plain wrapping paper or ?? . Instruction and the use of the woodblocks and the inks/paints are included in your workshop fee. If you have blocks, we invite you to bring them and share with other students if you like.  Results are quick, so do bring several projects to create!

The workshop fee is $32, and you can print several items. Preregistration is required, and workshop is limited to 7 people.

Sutra global imports is “Not an Ordinary Destination” ! Discover 2 floors of handmade and fairly traded home and personal accessories and adornments: folk art, ethnic clothing and adornment, zen home decor, sacred objects and so much more! We offer “Classes, Concerts and Conversations” each week with local artists offering their best. Sutra is open May – October Wednesday through Saturday. Owner Kim Hammer also offers cultural tours each winter to Bali and India for art lovers and adventure seekers.
