Handprinting textiles with Atelier Karaka

June 7, 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom


About this FieldTrip

In this workshop, you will take advantage of bottles and packaging you might have at home to create stamps and print colorful patterns on fabric or paper. You can use this technique to personalize a piece of clothing, a tablecloth or a postcard and create an original and meaningful gift. To participate, gather two or three flat-topped bottles, an EVA foam sheet, scissors, fabric or paper and a great deal of creativity!
