From inspiration to final product, learn more about how our designs come to life and what we mean by handmade. Every step of our process is done with intention in order to create goods that are beautiful, useful, and long lasting.
Woodnote goods are inspired by earth. For my designs, I draw inspiration from the natural world around me, as well as from aerial images via Google Earth. Whenever I'm in nature, I love identifying plants and taking in all the beautiful textures, shapes, and patterns of the flora and fauna. These details have inspired me creatively ever since I was a child.
All of my textile designs begin as hand-carved blocks. When creating new work, I look back to photos I've taken or rubbings I've done of leaves and flowers. I love the way the carving process brings my designs to life in a way that no other medium can.
Screen Printed Textiles
Once I have a block printed design I love, I digitize the block and turn it into a design that can be burned onto a screen. Our local production partners hand screen print our tea towels and napkins one at a time. We use eco-friendly, water-based inks that are machine washable and soft to the touch.
When creating prints, I love experimenting with a variety of printmaking techniques. For the most part, this work falls into the monoprinting category, meaning that they are one-of-a-kind pieces. I use plant material and found objects like string or rubber bands to create unique textures and shapes. I also often incorporate my carved blocks into my monoprints for added layering.
