Tiled Block Print with Gradation Workshop
Welcome to our workshop exploring hand block printing and the use of tessellated or tiled patterns. In this workshop, artist Mindy Schumacher introduces her craft with a detailed, digital workshop sharing how to create custom hand block printed silk scarves.
Printmaking is the age-old art form of making multiples. Each and every impression made from a printer’s block is an original piece of art, no two will be exactly the same, making this craft truly unique and handmade.
