Book Description

Modern Block Printing explores the ancient craft of printing by hand, through contemporary and simple designs.

Rowan Sivyer demonstrates the versatility of this beautiful medium through 17 easy projects: from greeting cards to printing on fabric and clay, to ideas for making homewares such as cushions and lampshades and even making your own unique Christmas ornaments and gift wrap.

Starting with the techniques, the easy-to-follow instructions take you through every step of the process, including choosing and caring for tools, through design essentials, carving and printing techniques, and even history of this ancient craft. Rowan is often inspired by nature, particularly in her homelands of New Zealand and
Australia. Modern Block Printing showcases these influences through Rowan’s use of pattern and colour, before teaching readers how to transform their prints into beautiful objects to gift or decorate the home with.
With beautiful photography and stunning design, Modern Block Printing is the essential modern maker's guide to printing by hand.
