About This Class

Curious what to do with your sketches? Want to customize your home goods and textiles? Learn how to block print a pattern with your own custom stamp!

In this class, you'll start with a simple tile design, carve it to create a stamp, and finally print it on a home product of your choice, such as a dish towel, a napkin, or a pretty journal.

Throughout every lesson, artist and designer Amelie Mancini gives you an understanding of the block printing process. Working with a simple design, she shows her start-to-finish process for carving a rubber block, inking her design, and applying her block print to a hand towel and wrapping paper for use at home — always playing with pattern combinations and showing the limitless possibilities with repeats.

Whether you're an artist, crafter, or DIY enthusiast, you'll enjoy the process of block printing for the art, design, and joy it will bring into your home.
