Blockprinting Workshop
Art+Soul Collective, Newport Beach

It was fun to collaborate with the Newport Beach Art+Soul Collective and teach an art workshop in their sunny space. Participants learned how to choose custom designed blocks, coordinate patterns and colors, make samples and then proceeded to the making of their own wall art and tote bags.

 
Block prints are done by eye, and telltale signs of the human hand, even imperfections, are part of the ineffable humanity and beauty of the craft. In this workshop, we demonstrated and taught the techniques of block printing and textile design with custom designed, modern blocks.
