The project consists of a DIY Kit and Workshop where participants will create their own block print designs using a kit that comes with all the supplies necessary. With these blocks, the design can be stamped on to fabrics using paints in various colors.
We will start with a bit of history about the process and introduction to the materials, but then get right into carving! Attendees will choose a simple shape to carve as this will take the most time if the design is too complicated. Our goal will be to repeat pattern print on your sample denim, but everyone will leave with the knowledge and supplies to continue after the instruction to print their jeans or tote bag provided by Neveena Mill. Along with your block, we’ll take about "found" pieces that you can find in your home. Small pieces of bubble wrap and cardboard can be used, rolled with ink, and pressed onto the fiber to create a background to your shape pattern.
