Rebecca Pearcy uses print and pattern to bring inspirations to life. Her store, Queen Bee has been crafting original creations since 1996. It all started with a series of waterproof faux-leather bags & wallets with graphic applique stitched details. Since then they have expanded their collection with a new line of waxed canvas bags, and other materials. They make bags for everyday, the bike commuter, travel, school, baby and more. They also have a line of home goods, accessories, and apparels.
Rebecca learned the art of printing on fabric and using repeat patterns through an apprenticeship program she did at Philadelphia's Fabric Workshop in 1997. It was there that she learned how to screen print by hand on tables that were 25 yards long. She fell in love with the process and began incorporating the art of textile printing in her own shop from then on.
We are excited to collaborate with Rebecca on a print making workshop this fall! Attendees will have a studio tour of Queen Bee and the opportunity to see behind the scenes of the process they use to create. Everyone will learn simple print making techniques and produce a sweet canvas pennant, along with gift wrapping and tags. Space is limited. Refreshments and materials are provided.
