An In-Studio Workshop!

Sunday, March 6, 1pm-5pm

View our current in-studio Health and Safety Policies >>

About this Workshop:

Develop your own repeat patterns utilizing simple shapes, cutting paper, and iterative experimentation.  In this fun workshop, students will explore visual language potential in fundamental shapes to create a suite of repeat patterns, while learning about types of repeats and touching on how to move from cut paper to applications.  We’ll begin by looking at the work of several influential designers and quickly move into design making.  This workshop is great for those printing by hand (such as screenprinters, rubber stampers), those using digital print services (such as Spoonflower), graphic designers, those who fear they can’t draw, those who want to get away from their computers for a bit, and anyone who would like to have an imagination playdate.  

Level: All levels welcome—no experience necessary

Registration extended to February 27, 2022.  Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.

Under the moniker Blue Skies Workroom, Alyssa Salomon designs and produces bags, aprons, books and objects for everyday living using her own screen-printed fabric and papers, lots of vibrant patterns and glowing colors.  Alyssa has always loved working with cloth and paper. Her grandfather was a tailor in Brooklyn, NY and allowed her to touch voluptuous bolts of woolens lined like library reference books in his cutting room.  As a small girl, Alyssa learned to sew from her mother, and as an established artist, to screen print during a faculty retreat at Penland School of Crafts.  Alyssa’s favorite color is still fluorescent.  In addition to in Pyramid’s Shop, Alyssa’s work can be seen at numerous galleries and shops including Penland Gallery (Penland NC), Candela Gallery (Richmond VA), and Contemporary Craft Store (Pittsburgh) and has been exhibited in national craft shows sponsored by American Craft Council, Smithsonian and Visual Arts Center.
