Exploring Personal Symbols, Motifs and Designs: Block Printing on Paper and Fabric


May 5-7, 2017 - 9:30 - 4:30 pm., Studio Joy!, 608 E 30th St, Kansas City

This workshop involves an in depth exploration of block printing on paper and fabric. Drawing inspiration from ethnic textiles and contemporary art, we will look at different sources and examples of how block printing can be used in artwork and  other creative pursuits. Motifs, designs and pattern repeats will be emphasized as well as the way pattern, repetition and rhythm can be used in compositions. Students will carve rubber blocks with their own unique images and will be encouraged to develop their own personal vocabulary. Instruction will be given on different types of repeats, such as: mirror repeats, quarter turn repeats, and seamless repeats. Designs can be used for home or clothing textiles, decorative papers, in handmade books or journals, or as limited edition prints.
