I will provide you with a tropical fish template to trace and carve. You may create your own details within the fish's body--stripes, patterns, scales, etc. Or you may bring an image of your own making to class to trace and carve (please contact me if you choose this option so I can assist you in creating an image that effectively translates from drawing to blockprinting). Additionally, you may print with any of my pre-carved blocks (waves, leaves, fish, geometric patterns, florals). Please bring 2-5 of your own garments or homegoods to decorate.

Blockprinting is a beautful and relatively simple way to trasfer images on to any flat surface. We'll be using linoleum blocks that I've designed and carved in a variety of themes (lines, waves, plants, animals, geometry, etc).  You'll be able to print create your textile using black ink on cream linen. Once your fabric is dry and heat-set, you will each cut, sew, and handstitch your one-of-a-kind panel onto a trucker hat of your color choice. Our company been creating handstitched hats since 2008 and is happy to share the fun of making this product with you.
