With her love of home always in her mind she creates pieces to enhance interiors and create beautiful, joyful spaces. Molly runs regular sell-out workshops around the country and has a growing social media following.
A modern, stylish and practical exploration of the traditional craft of block printing.
For self-taught textile designer Molly Mahon, there is something special about block printing that has stood the test of time. From the initial design process, through to the carving of the block, the mixing of the colour and the actual printing process, Molly has always found printing to be meditative.
This book enables readers to explore this ancient craft through Molly’s contemporary designs and the influences that inspire her use of pattern and colour, before teaching them practical skills and potential ways to transform their creations into beautiful homeware.
