A Project Sneak Peek
More About Our Maker
Erin is an artist and textile designer who creates beautiful patterned home goods from her San Diego studio. She joined us first in April of last year to teach an in-depth workshop on block printing and hand carving to create a custom table runner. We’re so excited to welcome her back to teach a NEW printmaking technique! Since 2012 Erin has been designing modern home goods for her company, Cotton & Flax, which unites fine art aesthetics with high-quality, natural materials.
Erin’s background as a printmaker informs her work for Cotton & Flax and her striking hand drawn patterns set her textiles apart as a blending of fine art and fine craft. She draws on her knowledge of printmaking for inspiration and to create richly patterned textiles that add modern style to any space. Cotton & Flax began as an offshoot of her fine art practice as Erin approached the task of creating utilitarian goods that reflected her background as an artist, and she continues to create work for Cotton & Flax with the mindset of an artist.
We invite you to follow along with Erin on Instagram to see more of her beautiful work! Be sure to share with us your progress and work using #thecraftersbox when posting, we’d love to see your progress! Happy creative making!
