Block Prints in Brilliant Color

Block Prints in Brilliant Color with Jessica White

Find inspiration in the textures and patterns you see in the nature to create multi-color block prints. Learn how to print in layers of colors made from a single block as well as how to combine blocks in a single composition. You’ll use these blocks to create prints as well as to print patterns that can be used to make personal stationery, patterned fabric, journal covers, and even as wall patterns. Open to individuals of all skill levels.

This small group class is presented in collaboration with John C. Campbell Folk School and Lessonface. Participants should enroll at least two weeks before start to ensure materials kits arrive in time. If registering after this point, your kit may arrive after the first session. Students are invited to attend an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony to connect with various online Folk School classes.
