Description

Working with Textile, Nature and Block Printing.

The idea of the workshop, starting with a 2-hour taster and continuing with a 12-week course, draws on the arts and craft movement up to 1960s twentieth-century fabrics as well as Indian and Persian wood block textile printing traditions. During the taster event, try out existing blocks (and a surprise) (alongside with refreshments) printing on textile bags.

Throughout the 12-week workshop, organized in 3 week x 4 stand-alone techniques and outcomes, we will look at these ideas by looking for colours and shapes that will help us create our own designs. Reflecting on the influence of nature and its colors on our well-being as we enjoy creating and imagining, each participant will create her/his own research journal of inspiration and print on fabric. Connect with the designs of Nature and its colours, and reflect on what such experiences of colour do to us, humans.
In the end, you will have created and named your own colour, carved 2 block shapes and learnt how to print on upcycled textiles.
