PRINTING ON FABRIC
with Jamie Karolich
SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 2019
In this class, students will learn the basics of block printing. Each student will carve their designs into stamps which we will then ink and print onto fabric. Each student will leave with a printed tote bag and bandana. Students are encouraged to bring fabric, t-shirts, pillow cases, etc. anything extra they would like to print on. Bring a notebook and pen for note taking, and any design ideas or sketches you have. Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty!
Available for one or two attendees, each private workshop is customized to any project you dream up! Design a wood-type poster, set lead type, or work with a polymer plate of your own design. Private workshops run for three hours and are available evenings or weekends at our printshop in Silver City, NM.
OPEN PRINT NIGHTS
next session TBA!
Every few months we open our shop for an evening drop-in session for locals or visitors who just want to play around with some ink and type, learn a little more about the process, or work on their own self-directed project. Previous printing experience is recommended, though not required. Fee covers ink, paper, and some tools and guidance. Additional tools and supplies will be available for purchase.
