Absolutely no experience is necessary. In under two hours, a certified Jam Master will teach you everything you need to know, including:

  • Introduction to fabric block printing tools

  • How to create patterns and layered designs

  • How to draw and transfer your design on a carving block

  • Key carving techniques

  • How to use inking plates, breyers and oil-based inks

  • Essential tips for block printing onto fabric

We have all the tools you need, including Speedball Speedy Carve blocks and carving tools, as well as breyers and inks in multiple colors and cute cotton tote bags to print on.
