Celebrate the mighty potato in this playful and tactile block print workshop with Jemima Dansey-Wright.

Jemima Dansey-Wright is a textile artist and maker specialising in contemporary block and screen printed projects and small batch products and garments that she sells through @primarypressglasgow and @estd.barras. She enjoys making work that has an everyday use. Her work is often influenced by nature, food, organic forms and travel – aiming to capture a mood, sense or reference a memory or story and hold on to the spontaneous quality block print.
She is drawn to block print because of the textured marks this technique produces and the immediate and intuitive way artwork can be developed and applied to a range of surfaces and garments.
