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 firstname.lastname@example.org
