Block Printing on Fabric

Event Category

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

Join Denver based printmaker Lucy Holtsnider for a block printing on fabric workshop! Over the five hour class we’ll practice drawing, carving, and printing linoleum blocks into repeating patterns onto fabric. This technique is fun, non-toxic, and easy to do at home with minimal equipment. One square yard of lightweight canvas fabric is provided for each person. Participants should bring a sack lunch, close toed shoes, and 4 x 6” or smaller image or drawing to base their print on. Bringing additional fabric items to print on, such as a canvas bag or bandana, is encouraged but optional.

Lucy Holtsnider is a printmaker and book designer based in Lakewood. In her fine art practice, she prints on a Vandercook SP-15 letterpress out of Zarapes Studios in Denver. As a designer, she designs book covers for self-published authors. Lucy currently teaches at Colorado College, and has taught courses at Yeshiva University, Marist College, and the University of California at Santa Barbara. Instagram: @lholtsnider
