WORKSHOPS


               

***SOLD OUT***

Join Block Shop founders Hopie and Lily Stockman for a wonderful, immersive day (or two days!) exploring the art of hand block printing using traditional techniques they learned from master printers in Bagru, Rajasthan.

In Joshua Tree, Hopie and Lily will teach you how to print with wooden blocks and dye your textiles in an indigo vat over an outdoor fire. You'll create your own works of wearable art, with the spectacular Mojave Desert landscape as your backdrop. Out-of-this-world vegetarian food made just for us by La Copine. 

In Los Angeles, Hopie and Lily are thrilled to open their new, airy Atwater Village studio to you for our first ever paper print workshop. Using traditional hand block printing methods, you’ll create your own custom wall art on recycled Indian cotton rag paper. Delicious wine and light snacks will be provided. Participants have the option to have Block Shop handle framing and shipping of your finished artwork in custom floated, shadow-box frames from Simply Framed (+ $60 / print).
