Bauhaus Block Printing for Textiles at Wildcraft Studio School

  • Wildcraft Studio School 601 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

I will be teaching a two day block printing workshop at Wildcraft Studio School focused on the Bauhaus design principles and its textile designers.

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.
