BLOCK PRINTING ON TEXTILES with Better Than Jam

block printing.png

Come to Artists and Fleas Williamsburg for a Better Than Jam block printing sampler workshop!

In this fun size session you'll get a quick lesson, carve your own mini block, and quickly print a small final piece. It is lot of fun, and you'll leave with your block so you can continue printing on your own! Students must come with a few sketches or ideas you would like to carve, no more than 2.5" square. Simple designs work best, and having a few options to choose from will be helpful.

You'll be shown how to properly use your carving tool, how your image will transfer, and we get right into carving! A quick carve "Block" and all tools are provided, as well as final bandana to print.

Students are welcome to bring their own final piece to print if they prefer. Prewashed and ironed natural fiber fabrics work best, and make sure it is no bigger than a tshirt as space is limited. All students will receive discount for future workshops at Better Than Jam, where textile printing is possible.

Simo Neri Art in the Pop Out

Simo Neri creates wearable art by printing her serial photography directly onto fabric - silk scarves, more specifically. Neri will be featuring her "American Spring 2017" collection this weekend in the Pop Out, where a portion of proceeds from sales will go to Planned Parenthood. See her mission below:

"On January 21st, as we were driving back to NY from the Women’s March on Washington, my friend and I decided that we were experiencing an “American Spring”, because it felt so much like a jolt, an awakening after a deep, sleepy torpor. The election had plunged many of us into a tailspin of depression and passivity, and this march provided the opportunity to react and resist. It was exhilarating to see how many people all over the world were able to use this opportunity to have their voices heard.

Inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, I created compositions for a scarf and double-sided pillow cover, based on the myriad of photographs taken during that day."
