Leave with lots of tips and knowhow to start your own textile creations. Students will learn how to cut stencils, learn about different inks, prepare fabric, and then print their own fabric designs.
Kirsten is known for her “Modern Scandinavian” aesthetic, and she creates original geometric and floral designs using stencils that she cuts by hand and then arranges in dynamic visual compositions using bright blocks of color and bold designs.
