  • About

    Breathe new life into your used shirts or cotton sweaters with the help of relief printmaking! 

    In this workshop, artist Jamie John will demonstrate how they print their designs on second-hand garments using soft rubber blocks and fabric ink. You’ll be guided through the process of designing and carving your own print(s), offered tips and tricks for printing with fabric ink, and by the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to walk away with your own personal customized clothing! 

    Jamie John will be giving a demonstration from start to finish for this process, and be discussing printmaking, the fast fashion industry, and how to use our creativity to resist mass consumption. 

    *Please bring along a garment to print.  Cotton, linen, or cotton polyester blend garments are recommended for first-time printers.

    Presented by Jamie John, a multi-disciplinary Anishinaabe and Korean-American artist from Traverse City, MI. Learn more about Jamie John.
