In this workshop you will learn how to create and develop your own design for block printing, learn the process of carving designs into soft linoleum, and how to print a repeat pattern on fabric. Once we finish printing we will learn the art of indigo dying and over dye our fabric in natural indigo. Each participant will leave with a large piece of cloth that can be worn as a scarf or used as a pillow cover or wall hanging.
We are so excited to have Arounna of Bookhou come to teach this class and PUNCH NEEDLE WALL ART class. Both block printing and rug hooking are areas of Arounna's expertise. Make it a full day of crafting and come to both!

TEACHER • Arounna Khounnoraj is a Canadian artist and maker working in Toronto where she immigrated with her family from Laos at the age of four. While her education includes a master’s degree in fine arts in sculpture and ceramics, it was through subsequent artist residencies that she found her current focus in fiber arts. In 2002 she started Bookhou, a multi-disciplinary studio with her husband John Booth, where Arounna explores screen printing and a variety of textile techniques such as embroidery and punch needle. She creates objects such as bags, home goods, and textile art.
