The Textile Museum has an amazing show up right now: Art by the Yard: Women Design Mid-Century Britain (which runs through September 12) features iconic patterns by three iconic designers who shaped the mid-century aesthetic with patterns that continue to inspire us today.
As part of the exhibition's programming there is a series of exciting film screenings and workshops going on at the museum. On July 24th (2-4pm), I'll be holding a workshop called 'The Printed Pattern' which will explore the basic methods of screen printing. The workshop includes a hands on portion where you'll be able to print your own patterned pillowcases (set of two) using designs inspired by the works in the show.. I'm particularly a fan of the works by Lucienne Day.

The workshop is $35 for Textile Museum Members and $45 for non-members. To register call: 202-667-0441 x64
