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. House of Print is Molly’s love letter to block printing. In it she shares the inspiration behind her work and how she started her own creative journey. She takes us to the bustling printing studios in India where she explores the work of local craftspeople and block printing’s rich history and traditions. Closer to home she invites us on nature walks and shares tips on how to find the right colour palette. She also looks back in history for inspiration and shares the enormous impact that the work of Vanessa Bell and the Bloomsbury Group has had on her designs.
