Block Printing + Sewing Workshop at Helms Bakery District
December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
On Saturday, December 2nd from 10 am to 4 pm, please join us in welcoming Akogare Trading Co. for a one-day-only Block Printing + Sewing Workshop.
In the morning, fiber artist and educator Carrie Burckle will introduce block printing techniques on unfinished textiles. Students will design and carve their own foam blocks, then experiment with color and pattern. Come afternoon, students will work with fashion designer and master sewer Yoshimi Radstrom of Kaban+ to transform their newly printed textile into a finished piece or pieces. Patterns will be available for an apron, simple wrap shirts, scarf, or simple zippered or drawstring pouches. Students may also bring their own fabric (natural fibers only) if they’d like to experiment with overprinting.
We’ll supply the raw materials you’ll need, including a selection of zippers and cording – as well as a light lunch, beverages, and great conversation! $50 material fee payable to instructors at the class.

PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER HERE. No refunds will be honored within 24 hours of the beginning of the workshop.
