Start the New Year perfecting your creative skills or acquiring new ones like Block Printing on Fabric—something soul-filling that you have wanted to do for a very long time, but have put off because of other responsibilities and commitments.
Workshop: Have you ever wanted to print your own fabric for your craft and DIY projects? In this class and with a few simple tools, you will learn how to carve printing blocks and transfer your designs onto fabric. You’ll leave with your own, custom-printed fabric and the knowledge and tools to work on more projects at home.
Supplies: All the special tools you’ll need to get started will be supplied, as well as a yard of cotton muslin fabric to practice on.
Sustenance: Snacks, beverages and a tasty locally sourced lunch will be provided.
Your instructor, Jen Hewett, is a San Francisco-based printmaker, surface designer and teacher. Jen and her brightly-printed bags have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, Anthology Magazine, UPPERCASE, and Design*Sponge. She has taught hundreds of students both online and in person and has led workshops for corporate design teams.
The Workshop is open to the public. Because sharp tools are used, this class is limited to adult students.
