Printing blocks and mall

Two typical printing blocks - one a general pattern block, the other a scarf quarter block.

The mall has a lead weight head. The head is held in the hand, and the end of the wooden shaft banged down on the block during the printing process to ensure an even print. Experienced block printers would often use their clenched fists instead..

Block Printing
Our work includes giving block printing demonstrations to school groups and others. We accept bookings from all groups.
