Are you interested in block printing,

but have no idea where to start?


Maybe you're:


- worried you'll waste a ton of time and money trying to figure out what supplies to buy


- nervous that your art skills aren't good enough


- concerned you'll need a ton of space and time to print



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 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 fix this problem.

So that's why I created...

FAQ

What if I have no art experience? I can't draw for beans!

90% of my students have no art experience either, so you'll be in good company! The drawing portion of this project is only used as a guideline, so if it's messy, no problem! And if you really are feeling that anxious about it, you can always trace any design you want or use one of my custom templates that are included in the course :)


When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.


How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.


What if I am unhappy with the course?

I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.


Can’t I learn a lot of this stuff on YouTube or by reading your blog?

Ah, the age of creation, where anyone with an iPhone video camera can pretend to be an expert… :) You’d be surprised how much bad information is out there! You can pick up some basics from my blog, sure, but if you want to really get into creating clean, sharp prints, quickly and efficiently, want to skip the long learning curve, and pick up a ton of pro tips from a legit expert who’s been printing nearly a decade, this class will deliver!


I'm an experienced artist. Will I learn anything in this class?

Yes! This class was designed with newbies in mind, but it is easily adapted to more experienced crafters and artists. Not only will you get all the basics, but after your purchase you'll get the option to purchase my Advanced Techniques Mini Course, which is the ONLY time I will ever offer this information, anywhere.


I live in the UK/EU/AU/IN and it's hard to get US supplies. Are there supply options for where I live?

Yes! I include an international supply list with updated links inside the course. If you're ever unsure about a specific item, just email me and I'll be happy to help you find what you need in your country.


I still have questions!

No worries. I'm happy to answer any and all of your questions. You can reach me at [email protected] :)

This class is perfect for you if:


- you have no art experience (newbies welcome!)


- you're an experienced artist or crafter and you want to pick up another medium or hobby


- you're afraid of drawing and painting, and are convinced that you have no artistic skill whatsoever


This class is NOT for you if:


- you don't enjoy spending time working with your hands and making a bit of a mess ;)


- you are looking for instant gratification. Block printing is a process, but I promise it's worth the wait!


- you don't like pretty handmade things
