Do you spend your days looking for the perfect curtain fabric or dreaming of the sofa cushion that’s just your style? How about making them yourself at one of the Mirja Mauno textile workshops – expertly led by British-Finnish textile designer Hanna Mason. A vivid pattern pro, Hanna will guide you in creating your very own textile pattern, from the basic principles right through to the design itself. You and your (socially-distanced) co-designers will spend an afternoon learning and getting inspired from an array of colors, materials and literature before you choose a pattern from your various sketches and drafts. Your design will then be brought to life at a professional print shop where it will be printed onto fabric either by machine or digitally (the printing is included in the price). The afternoon goes by like a flash, and you leave with some handy new skills and full of excitement as you await your textile creation. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Joe Wray)
