CraftSanity Podcast 139: Jennifer talks block printing with Colouricious creator and UK artist Jamie Malden

IMG_5741

This was one of the best discoveries of my recent trip to the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan – imported block printing stamps from India.

IMG_5439While printing with pre-carved stamps seems a bit like cheating for this printmaker, I absolutely LOVE being able to jump into a project right away without having to carve my own block.

I met Jamie Malden at the quilt show and fell hook, line and sinker for block printing and the lovely blocks she sells on her Colouricious website. My daughters and I shopped for our favorite blocks to start our collection and had a great time trying them out at home.

Tune in to the podcast to learn more about how you can create beautiful handprinted fabrics of your own and then start making plans to travel to India to see how these beautiful blocks are carved. : )

Gratitude: A special thanks to my Patreon sponsors and my new sponsor, ACS Home and Work, for supporting this podcast. I discovered ACS when I was looking for a local source for flour sack tea towels for printmaking and embroidery purposes. I’m very happy to be supporting a West Michigan-based company with my business and now ACS is stepping in to sponsor the CraftSanity Podcast through the end of the year. (Thank you!!)

In the coming weeks, I’ll be telling you more about this fun company and sharing some videos demonstrating some of the things I’m making with their products. In the meantime, go check out their website and thank them for supporting the CraftSanity Podcast.

Want to suggest an artist or crafter for an upcoming podcast? Just email me, I’d love to hear from you.
