We have teamed up with local artist and print maker Morgan Wedderspoon to bring you an afternoon of block printing.  Introduce yourself to the ancient craft of decorating fabric using carved blocks and pigment!  We have designed a modular system of blocks that can be combined in infinite ways to give you infinite patterns. Try it out, learn some tips, and open up a world of block printing possibilities.
