Referencing Marimekko’s pattern prints on the fabric, workshop participants will learn to carve patterns on linoleum blocks at home and use these stamps to create pattern prints for postcards, wallpaper, wrapping paper, textiles, and more. From preparing drawings, transferring images to blocks, carving, consideration of printing paper, and printing, each step of the process will be covered. A printing press is not required, all you need is a linoleum block, a favorite object for reference, and a passion for carving! Participants will complete two pattern prints and a class collaborative one-page zine.
