Carve your own reusable rubber stamps with traditional carving tools and learn textile design basics to successfully print your drawings & designs onto fabric.
You will be guided on how to turn your ideas into motifs, perfect for block printing and how to safely & effectively use carving tools & fabric paint.
During the workshop you will have the opportunity to sample and experiment, then print either a tea towel, tote bag or a repeating length of fabric to take home a sew.
This course is perfect for beginners with no experience or artists that want to expand their creative practice!
ABOUT ROZ FROM BE KIND TEXTILES
Roz Slade, is a Melbourne based textile designer & maker that loves exploring the connection people have with textiles, and sharing her appreciation for the hand-crafted with others.
After graduating Textile Design and Development at RMIT where she majored in weave and printmaking, she stepped away from the outward pressure put on her to create wasteful products using materials and supply chains with questionable ethics. She now prefers a slower more thoughtful design process.
Spending the next few years exploring every craft within her reach in her own personal practice she is sharing her results and life-long love of art and textiles with willing students.
Roz teaches textile based workshops around Melbourne and Regional Victoria, hosted by a variety of organisations and venues, combining her love and knowledge of textiles with the therapeutic act of hand-making.
Her label Be Kind Textiles is about what she loves doing most, creating thoughtful quality products, while using sustainable methods, ethically sourcing materials and being kind to the earth.

The effect of repeat patterns. The materials and carving techniques. I love the calico bag I printed from my oen design. Class was friendly and well organised, no time wasted.
