Design fans, you’ll love the photos from this workshop that took place in Joshua Tree last fall. Block Shop, an LA-based textile company, brought together a group of creatives to teach them the Indian tradition of hand block printing using carved wooden blocks and naturally made dyes. Gathering with a group of like-minded makers and soaking up some sunshine at a homestead out in the Mojave Desert while designing scarves sounds like the perfect way to spend a Sunday.
We recently had a little chit-chat with Lily and Hopie, the sister duo behind Block Shop, and they filled us in on how they got started with their business and the inspiration behind their workshops. Stay tuned for more workshops from this crew, as they’re always adding new gatherings to their calendar. Make sure to sign up for notifications of upcoming workshops here.
