Textile block printing with The Craft Lab

This Sunday I attended a workshop led by Heather of The Craft Lab. It was a textile block printing class in Another Space at 1523 East Pender Street. It was a blast!

We started with a quick review of materials and different ways we could block print using found objects, DIY stamps or store-bought stamps.



Heather gave us some quick demos.



Then we got to play, test, try different stamping techniques, etc.



Here's my first test using wine corks, erasers and traditional stamps.



Here are some stamps I created. I tested, tested AND tested before committing to my final project - the canvas bag.



Lots of awesomeness was created.



Here I am with Heather (aka The Craft Lab) and new crafty peep Lindi.



My final project... A bit retro and funsie.



The circular stamps worked out really well. And the pink added a bit of pizzazz!



So overall a pretty darn FAB way to spend a Sunday afternoon.



And Another Space is a great place for getting crafty.



They have tons of events and happenings at Another Space... I'll definitely be back!



Big thanks to Heather for a super FAB workshop and to Another Space for hosting!
