Supplies to Bring to Class
  • An assortment of fabric in a variety of solid-like prints, 6-8 fat or long quarters or eighths are great.
  • Fat quarter to ½ yard of solid white or PFD white
  • An assortment of images for inspiration – these can be photos, pages torn from magazines, sketches, design books, etc
  • A sketchbook with plain sheets (not ruled), a drawing pencil and an eraser
  • X-acto knife with #11 blade
  • Small rotary mat
  • Linoleum cutter with blades (#2 v-gouge, #4 u-gouge are needed – #3 large line & #5 large v-gouge are nice to have – Speedball makes a good set)
  • *note: if you have trouble finding a lino cutter and blades let me know. I can send you links to online stores. I also have a limited number of student-grade cutters that I can bring with me.
  • Sharp scissors for paper
  • Stamp pads for fabric (Versacraft is an excellent brand for fabric printing)
  • A small assortment of acrylic or textile paints (Jacquard Lumiere, Neopaque, and Liquitex soft-body acrylics are all great)
  • A few foam brushes (1” and 1½” are best)
  • Rubber gloves, if you don’t like getting your hands dirty
  • Baby wipes
  • Small spray mister
  • An apron or smock is a good idea for when we’re working on the messy stuff
  • Optional but super helpful: an old computer mousepad or a scrap of cotton batting for a printing surface
