CREATING NEW BLOCK PRINTS FOR THE SEASON. PART 1
I sometimes feel that mastering the technicalities of a block print design is a bit like a meeting in Churchill’s War Room.
I start off with what I think is a world conquering, blisteringly majestic design, and the master craftsmen all lean over the table shaking their heads and tutting whilst slowly pointing out all the flaws in my plan.
And that’s why we call them the Masters. They have perfected their craft over decades and generations. The print may look deceivingly simple, but to create it by hand rather than machine or computer takes incredible skill and a sharp eye.
Not to mention tact and diplomacy… they are dealing with me after all!!!
