In this workshop with teaching artist Yanira Vissepo, participants will acquire basic skills for designing and making their own patterned textiles, inspired by the exhibition Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style. After students explore the work of Mackintosh and his contemporaries during a walk through the exhibition, they will sketch and create their own designs. Then, they will use techniques such as stenciling and block printing to transfer images onto fabric, with a emphasis on pattern making.
Yanira Vissepo is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on printmaking and textile art. Her woodblock designs reflect her time studying traditional techniques in Japan. Vissepo merges the traditional with the new, utilizing the mokuhanga printing technique as the translator. She has worked with various mediums that involve printmaking, including free-form tapestries, block-printed textiles, and soft sculptures, as well as works on paper. She attended The International School of Mokuhanga in 2019 and was the artist-in-residence at Coop Gallery in 2020.
