Try a new craft while creating textiles in the Bauhaus Design tradition! The German Bauhaus Design Movement (1919-1933) was one of the most important aesthetic influences on mid-century Scandinavian design, breaking with the pasts romantic and ornate designs to put simple graphic lines and bold colors at the forefront of art, architecture, and home goods.
In this evening long class, students will work alongside Katrina Ulrich, a textile artist trained in block printing in the Indian tradition. Katrina has assembled her own collection of hand carved wooden blocks, bright colored ink, and several textile options for this cross-cultural project, which blends Indian printing techniques, German colors and shapes, and Scandinavian mid-century design influence. No previous experience is necessary to create fun and unique textiles in this class!
A $20 materials fee is due to the instructor in class and covers all tools, materials, and several small projects such as a tote bag or towel, to take home. Suitable for ages 14+.
