Workshop Overview

Learn to create your own seamless, repeating patterns. This class will teach you all about the world of printmaking, patterns, and their application (which includes things like gift wrap, textiles, wallpaper, and stationery). Each student will create a collection of 3 repeat patterns inspired in part by the environment at Sitka. We’ll carve rubber and linoleum blocks to make your designs come to life in repeat, and learn about different carving tools, printing surfaces, and inks. Students will leave class with their carved blocks and a series of printed tea towels, with the knowledge to make many more repeat patterns.
