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.
