February 4+6 - Old Skool Screen Printing!
04February

Ask and you shall receive! Screen printing is the number one project request we get from Social Clubbers so here it is...

We will be learning about the process and ways to replicate it at home without a dark room, light table or press. We will be creating our stencils by hand so bring a black and white image to trace. 

You will get to make 2 prints of your screen so bring a t-shirt or other fabric item to print on! (if you really like our super soft shirts, we'll have some awesome blanks in the Social Club Commissary)

18February

Have you always wanted to try printmaking but were intimidated? This new workshop will get you started! You'll learn the basics of block printing including how to use wood carving tools and how to apply ink with a brayer. We'll be using a special soft material for our stamps that is easy to work with and super fast to carve. This method works great for printing on paper, but we're also going to print on fabric! We'll talk about how to create repeating patterns. Everyone will get to take home their finished stamps and 2 printed tea towels.

February 19 - Knit with Nikkila
19February

Join us for this special Sunday workshop led by Nikkila Carroll (babycreep). If you've seen her around town during these chilly winter days she's probably been sporting one of her colorful, cozy infinity scarves. She's going to show us how to create our very own! 

This is a great beginner knitter project. We'll be using chunky yarn in an acrylic, wool blend with large needles for fast results. 

We include everything you need to make one scarf: yarn, needles, and a written pattern to take home to make more. You'll get to chose from 6 colors to make your scarf one of a kind.

March 4+6 - Silk Marbling
04March

Zen and the art of marbling. Remember those beautiful old paper stacks called books? Well the older (and fancier) ones often had marbled edges and inside covers.  We'll be teaching you how to marble your own paper with custom colors and intricate patterns. Once you get the hang of it we'll show you how to create a beautiful marbled piece of silk.

March 11+13 - Indigo Dye!
11March

Dress down for this one folks, it may get messy!

This week in the clubhouse we're going to be playing with indigo dye! Once called blue gold, this oldest of dyes was a rare luxury. You are all familiar with the synthetic version of the indigo plant that is used to dye our blue jeans. The natural version of this process holds a little bit of funk and a little bit of magic.

We'll explore some resist methods and some techniques borrowed from the japanese tradition of Shibori, to create patterns on our fabric.

We'll provide the dye bath, gloves and pieces of white cotton muslin. Bring your own white fabric or a t-shirt to dye if you'd like. Make sure it is 100% plant or animal fibers (cotton, silk, wool, etc), no synthetics for this one.
