Join Block Shop founders Hopie and Lily Stockman at their airy Los Angeles studio for an immersive day exploring the art of hand block printing using traditional techniques they learned from master printers in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
We’ll start by teaching you the basic principles of Block Shop pattern design. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves and teach you how to block print using wooden blocks we designed, on paper made for us in Jaipur from recycled cotton textile scraps.
Delicious lunch from DTLA Cheese 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 (+ $105 / print). No printing experience required, we welcome all backgrounds!
Limit of 14 students. Non-refundable.
SCHEDULE Saturday, June 6th 10am-3pm
LOCATION Block Shop Textiles Studio Atwater Village, Los Angeles (exact address & details will be emailed to enrolled workshoppers)
