Block Party: Block Printing With Carla Weeks
Design and print your own furoshiki with Carla Weeks! Join us at the Rikumo Concept Store for a special DesignPhiladelphia crash course in the art of block printing designs onto fabric. Led by Philadelphia artist Carla Weeks, students will learn about the history and significance of block printing before trying their hand at printing their own designs. You'll leave with a working knowledge of block printing and functional furoshiki to use and reuse for years to come.

The lecture portion is free and open for the public to attend, but only 16 paid participants will receive hands-on instruction. Snacks and refreshments will be served. Once purchased, tickets are transferable but non-refundable. If you have any questions, please email us at events@rikumo.com

About Carla Weeks: Carla is a British born artist and designer living in Philadelphia, PA. Using pattern as a vehicle to articulate memory, Carla's paintings, textiles, and murals are visual recordings informed by her interactions with both natural landscapes and the built environment. Distilling the color and form experienced in specific geographic locations, Carla aims to create 2-dimensional patterns that communicate a resonating sense of place.
