Event description

Join Michelle Pereira as she guides you through a woodblock print workshop based on her “Billie” fabric collection. You will work with ground, base colors, woodblock printing, paint application techniques, configuration, and color – all crucial elements in making a piece of blank fabric come to life. You will end up with custom, hand-printed fabric than can be turned into a pillow. Bitters, wine and delectable nibbles will be served. Space is limited to 15 participants.

About Michelle Pereira:
Michelle Pereira, a California native and lifelong artist, has been designing textiles, apparel and home accessories since 1997.

Her horticultural, planetary and geometric designs are created by hand printing and painting custom-crafted wood blocks in the artisan’s tradition, a yard at a time. Her tiger stripe patterning adapts Japanese Shibori techniques in which the fabric is sewn and folded onto cylindrical forms before dyeing or painting.

Michelle works with interior designers and architects on exceptional projects and has sold her specialty pieces and pillows in boutiques across the country.

Michelle is represented in Sloan Miyasato at the San Francisco Design Center, and Mimi London at the Pacific Design Center.
