Printing on fabric...part 2
We all loved our workshop on printing on fabric so much that we headed for our local Art shop to stock up on supplies this morning. We bought inks, a roller and calico. This afternoon we set to work.
We made a simple block by cutting out our shape, a cupcake from foam and used double sided tape to stick it to firm cardboard.
The kids took turns rolling the ink on the block and applying the block to the fabric. MJ was pattern manager, he was quite strict on how it should be repeated. While I was 'mess' coordinator and tidy uper, of course!
Now we wait for our printed fabric to dry before we turn it into something special...watch this space.
