Block Printing and
Espadrille Making

with Sarah Bertochi

2 Workshops in One Fun Filled Day!

October 17

10 am - 4:30 pm

Sarah Bertochi is a surface pattern designer, and print maker from Marlboro, MA. She starts with sketches and then her original designs are fine tuned digitally and then transferred to either a linoleum block or screen for final rendering. She then uses the printed fabric to create everything from handbags to dishtowels and now, even,  Espadrilles. She can not wait to teach you how to do it too!
