Learn Block Printing with Kristen at Snowfarm

I am so excited to let you know that I’m heading back to Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program May 10 – 12, 2024, to teach a block printing class. I hope you’ll join me! In this class, I’ll be teaching students how to carve and print with blocks and will also dive into the basics of pattern repeats.

Block Printing in Repeat Class Description

According to Snow Farm’s website, in this class, students will, “Create block print designs and repeating patterns to make unique, one-of-a-kind textiles. Carve block stamps, play with color and composition, and print directly onto linens of all kinds. For both beginners and experienced printers, learn the basics of designing in repeat and experiment with a variety of patterns. Go home with printed napkins or tea towels, and bring your own new or upcycled textiles for printing.

*May 10 is the arrival day for this session. Workshop instruction starts on May 11 and ends on May 12.”

Snow Farm is such an inspiring place.

I fell in love with Snow Farm in the spring of 2022 when I spent two weeks there on an artist residency. Not only was it beneficial to have two weeks devoted solely to creative work, but I felt so refreshed just being on their campus.

The Snow Farm campus is beautiful, peaceful, and rustic. Originally owned by the Snow Family, the property sits on 50 acres and is surrounded by fields and hills. The farmhouse, where the fiber studio is located, dates back to 1750 and oozes history. It’s such a beautiful location to create and spend time in nature.

Class sizes are limited.

Community is core to the mission of Snow Farm, which is why they keep class sizes small. Small sizes allow for more personalized instruction and give students the opportunity to make meaningful connections with each other. For this reason, I highly recommend registering as early as possible to secure your spot. Registration opens on January 11, 2024. If you have any questions about the class or Snow Farm, feel free to reach out.
