I will be teaching at 2 day block printing workshop at Wildcraft Studio School in Portland this November 4th and 5th. Visit the Wildcraft course list for more information.
Drawing inspiration from the history of Bauhaus Textiles, students will be introduced to repeat block-printing using a geometric and structured approach. Day 1 will be spent exploring the weavings of Anni Albers & other Bauhaus textile artists, while developing drawings and designs suitable for block printing. Negative & positive space will be emphasized alongside bold, graphic expressions. Day 2 will teach students how to carve blocks, mix inks and print on fabric. Each student will leave with a completed piece of patterned yardage.
I hope to see you there!
