Cards for Humanity: A Craft Workshop

  • EAB 2445 M Street Northwest Washington, DC 20037 (map)

For the love of doing something good and creative, show off your crafting skills and make a card for that special someone!

Join us for a card-making workshop with Baltimore-based social impact designer, Jermaine Taron Bell. It'll be an evening of good vibes and creativity as Jermaine guides us through his process for crafting a one-of-a-kind greeting cards made up of textile patterns that include the African diaspora, with simplified, digital, geometric shapes.

Jermaine’s work is inspired by everything from Black Internet Culture, to black intelligentsia, and the aesthetics of hip hop and R&B of the late 1990’s and early 2000's. His designs features quotes from some of America's greatest black activists intertwined with rich patterns and bold composition. We will also have a pop-up shop featuring Jermaine’s digital prints, stationary, and enamel pins.

We will supply:

  • Paper, scissors, glue, glitter pens and Sharpies.

Some things you could bring:

  • A favorite pen, pencil, or marker

  • Collage materials—glossy magazines, bits of fabric, lace, ribbon, photos, and any other paper ephemera that could be fun to use (ticket stubs, old maps, takeout menus, newsprint, etc.)
