Class Booklets

Jen Hewett block printing class booklets

I block print an informational booklet for every in-person class I teach. I didn’t think about saving them until recently; I wish I had kept a booklet from each class as a souvenir.

You can see my teaching schedule here.

A Three-Day Block Printing Workshop!

A three-day block printing retreat with Jen Hewett at the Mini-Makerie

Join me for a three-day block printing workshop, hosted by The Makerie. This workshop will take place February 17-19, 2017, in beautiful Boulder, CO.

During this three-day mini Makerie workshop, we will explore the deeply satisfying craft of block printing on fabric –¬†from gathering inspiration, to creating designs, to carving blocks, and then, finally, to printing. Each student will leave with their own hand-printed fabric, tote bag, and 1-2 scarves. While this workshop is structured around daily activities, its small size will allow students to work at their own pace, with individual guidance and ample one-on-one instruction from me.

You can learn more and register here. Hope to see you there.

I’m teaching in Hudson, NY

Block Printing on Fabric with Jen Hewett at Drop Forge and Tool in Hudson, NY

I’m doing a two-week residency at Drop Forge and Tool in Hudson, NY in May. As part of that residency, I’ll be teaching my Block Printing on Fabric class on Sunday, May 22nd. I mentioned it on Instagram and in my March newsletter, not thinking that the class would fill up before May, but I just found out that there’s only one space left! I guess people on the East Coast want to learn how to block print, too.

If you’d like to register, you can do so here. And if there’s enough demand, we may look for a larger class venue so we can accommodate more students. I don’t regularly travel to teach (though I will be teaching in Ventura, CA next week), so if you’d like to learn with me in person and are in the Hudson Valley area, this is your chance!

Update: as of March 8, this class is sold out. We’re looking at other venues so we can accommodate more students; please contact Drop Forge and Tool if you’d like to be added to the wait list.

Three months of classes!

It’s been awhile since I last did a class recap – I used to do one after every class, before I started teaching monthly. Of course, you can see some photos from my classes on Instagram, but I try not to over post there.
