Friday, February 17

Morning:
Weather permitting, we will start our retreat with a walk to gather inspiration and to focus ourselves for the next three days. We will then return to the studio to get to know one another, and discuss the schedule and pace of the retreat before we start creating inspiration boards.

Afternoon:
Using our inspiration boards as a guide, we will create drawings for our blocks and will begin to carve them. Jen will provide individual guidance around creating designs that are compelling, as well as instruction around the process of carving our blocks.

No special skills are required to attend this workshop. Drawing skills are not necessary; however, an awareness of your own design taste and preferences is!

About Jen Hewett

Jen Hewett is a printmaker, surface designer, textile artist and teacher. A lifelong Californian, Jen combines her love of loud prints and saturated colors with the textures and light of California landscapes to create highly-tactile, visually-layered, printed textiles.

She is also an experienced teacher, having taught block printing on fabric to over a thousand students (both in-person and online) around the world.

When she's not creating in her San Francisco studio or teaching her popular block printing classes, she can be found hiking with her high-strung dog Gus, biking on San Francisco's less-hilly streets, or hiding out at her neighborhood wine bar.
