Fabric Block Printing Weekend Intensive
With Susana McDonnell
2 days: Saturday and Sunday
December 2nd and 3rd
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Cost: $470 (All materials included in price)

Discover the joys of printing on fabric during this full weekend of block printing with Susana McDonnel of LinoCave. Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced block printer looking to refine your skills, Susana will allow you the opportunity to learn new techniques for each aspect of block printing and most importantly, have time to practice them. Susana will demonstrate her tried and true methods for pattern design, carving and different methods of inking. All materials and supplies will be included, but if students have specific fabric items they would like to print, they should bring them along, but please pre-wash them. Students will leave with an array of hand-printed textiles, their own rubber block, and the skills and knowledge to continue the process from home.

Susana McDonnell is the owner of LinoCave, a Boston-based home studio focused on geometric pattern design and block printing on fabric and paper. She holds a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and is a lifelong artist who has studied and taught many mediums including, but not limited to glassblowing, neon, wood, drawing and watercolor. Despite the fact that block printing is one of the few mediums she has not formally studied, the allure of it inspires her to teach and explore it further every day. She is the co-host of @printersolstice, a prompt-based printmaking campaign on Instagram that inspires printmakers around the world to create during the winter solstice and is also a Speedball Demo Artist.
