Bush Inspired Printmaking with Fiona Wright

Course Overview

Using hand carved wooden blocks [supplied], foam sponge and gum leaves we’ll spend a day print making.

Consider building up a repeat print from simple motifs layered together, you will take home a range of samples and a fabric length to use for clothing or homewares.

Our theme will focus on motifs from the Australian Bush but the ideas are applicable to any motifs that rock your boat.


There will be khadi cotton [Indian hand spun hand-woven cloth available for purchase] or bring your own well washed cloth to use (suggested 3 m and a bunch of smaller pieces to do tests on and  an apron)

Use Fiona’s carved wooden blocks a materials kit will cover sponge to cut stamping blocks and ink for printing (material fee $25).
