Put your 'hand' into handmade with Corrie Ladd from Korai Goods as she walks you through, step by step, how to create and make a block print.
From a beautiful pair of earrings to their Tata Towel (a personal favorite), Korai Goods
offers a variety of hand-crafted jewelry and textiles made to be worn, loved, and passed down or over. Our friend, Corrie (the founder of Korai Goods), believes in honoring the ‘hand’ in handmade which is why she is offering a few classes to teach the basics of linoleum printmaking.
From her home studio in Pine Lake, Georgia, Corrie mainly works with glass enamel making stunning handmade pieces that are simple but set apart in their unique beauty. Modern in simplicity but approachable in their organic imperfection.
“Not a lot of people work in glass enamel because it can be so unpredictable, but I like that. I like that the temperature of the kiln determines how the color turns out. I like that I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be getting at the end, but it creates a unique piece of art that, once somebody sees it, it either speaks to them or it doesn’t.”
As a way to show more of her whimsical personality through her products, Corrie started making block printed tea towels. They quickly grabbed the attention of wholesalers and eventually led many to the full body of her work. As her brand has grown and shifted, Ladd's quirky tea towels still remain as the perfect juxtaposition to her beautifully minimal jewelry pieces.
In her class, Corrie will show you step by step how to carve a design from a linoleum block and print it to fabric just like she does with her signature tea towels. From sketch to final product, she’ll be there to walk you through the whole process. Each class also includes a complimentary adult beverage to sip on while you get your print on!
Two types of classes will be offered:
- Tote Bag Printing Workshop:
Sketch and carve a design from linoleum block to print onto a tote bag.
- Tea Towel Printing Workshop:
Sketch and carve a design from linoleum block to print onto a tea towel.
