Design & Block Print Your Own Furoshiki Workshop With Little Rowan RedHeadMade By Me Workshop
Design and Block Print Your Own Furoshiki (Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap) with legendary visual artist and published author Little Rowan Redhead!
In this engaging workshop, you'll have the opportunity to learn the art of sustainable gift wrapping with Little Rowan Redhead and her Christmas workshop, "Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap: Design and Block Print Your Own Furoshiki." Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths traditionally used to wrap and/or to transport goods and gifts.
Throughout the class, you'll discover the traditional Japanese technique of Furoshiki and embrace sustainable art by designing, carving, and block printing your own reusable fabric wraps.
During the workshop, Little Rowan Redhead will guide you through the process, making sure even beginners can feel at ease and unleash their artistic talents. You'll learn how to design and carve unique rubber stamps and print your motifs onto fabric, creating not only stunning artworks but also practical and personalized gift wraps. These Furoshiki creations can be used for wrapping gifts, as tote bags, or even as decorative elements in your living space. Rowan will demonstrate several wrapping techniques and show you how to elevate your gift-giving this Christmas!
Not only will you learn the art of block printing and design, but you'll also have the chance to connect with like-minded individuals in a supportive and collaborative environment. Engage in discussions with fellow participants, delving into ideas for sustainable living and finding creative inspirations.
By the end of the workshop, you will leave with your own hand-printed Furoshiki wrap and any rubber stamps you carve, allowing you to continue your eco-friendly gift wrapping journey at home. Plus, to keep your creative energy flowing, you'll be treated to a delicious morning tea provided by Rebecca from Made by Me Workshop.
Since 2017 Rowan has been teaching block printing and watercolour workshops around the country in corporate, private and public settings. Rowan finds teaching to be incredibly rewarding - helping others to flex their creative muscles is as satisfying to her as pulling off a successful print!

Can't wait to welcome you and see what beautiful creations you'll make!
