Are you interested in block printing but have no idea where to start?

Are you worried that you’ll waste a ton of time and money
trying to figure
out what supplies to buy?

Or maybe you’re just worried that your art skills aren’t good enough?

Hey, I get it! I was there not so long ago myself.

I started block printing in 2009 with no idea what I was doing. Eight years of art school, and I somehow never learned anything about printmaking.

I wasn’t sure where to start, but I figured that between Google and my solid art background, it wouldn’t take long for me to figure it out on my own.

But when I started researching, I only found vague and conflicting information (some of which was just dead wrong!) and found myself more confused than ever.

I finally just drove to the art store and ended up leaving with a pile of totally useless supplies after consulting the unknowledgeable sales guy (which ended up costing me a ton of extra money).

After a few days of frustration and a pile of wasted sad, smeary prints, I decided that I was going to stick with it until I found the best way to get my designs onto fabric.

Weeks later, after much trial and error (and 17 more trips to the art store), I felt that I had finally found the perfect combination of tools and techniques to make the perfect print.

I could now take any design I wanted and turn it into a beautiful piece of block printed fabric quickly and easily!

Shortly after, I started teaching what I had learned to others. Through interactions with my students, I learned an insane amount about how people approached my process.

After nearly 1000 students came through my door, I realized that 98% of them had the exact same questions and made the same mistakes when it came to block printing.

These small mistakes were affecting the look of their prints, making them frustrated and unhappy with their end results...even leading them to want to give it up entirely.

I could help the people in my classes, but what about all those other people out there trying to block print with no idea what they were doing?

I started thinking about how I could help them and others like you.

What if you didn’t have to spend extra hours and money sourcing all the right supplies?

What if I could prevent you from making all those easily avoidable mistakes I kept seeing my students make?

It made me want to create something to help you make your best work.

Something that I could hand you that would answer all your questions about tools, inks, printing, creating a design, and fixing the most common issues.

Something that I could give you that would have you block printing your own custom fabric by the end of the day, even if you had no prior art experience.

Now Imagine..

Imagine coming home from work after a long day of sitting in front of a screen, turning on some music, and taking an hour or two just to relax, be creative and use your hands for art.

Imagine how it would feel to gift a handmade baby blanket (printed by you!) to your new niece or nephew.

Imagine using your new skills to create beautiful handmade products to sell online or in shops to happy customers worldwide.

Imagine your friends walking into your home and seeing your hand printed pillows on the couch and asking where you bought them.

Now imagine their faces when you tell them you made it yourself…

I want everyone to experience a moment like this! And I knew I could easily solve this problem.

So that’s why I created..

Danielle Broder

Hey, I'm Danielle and I love helping people explore their creative side through printmaking. I'm an illustrator and textile designer with a love for interiors and handmade design.

I started teaching my block printing process over 5 years ago through workshops in my kitchen, and have since taught thousands of students how to block print online, many who claimed they were terrified to even pick up a pencil.

Block printing is such a fun and forgiving medium, and I love seeing what my students create and come up with. Come join in on the fun, and I'll see you inside!


This class is perfect for you if:

  • you have no art experience

  • you are afraid of drawing and painting and are convinced that you have no artistic skill whatsoever (I've met many of you and I assure you, you do!)

  • you DO have art experience, but want to pick up another medium or fun hobby
