Want to learn how to personalise your own garments or create your own fabric gift wrapping?
Block printing is a tactile printing technique that allows you to quickly embellish and personalise garments; giving new life to old things and keeping clothes in use longer by covering stains. You can even upcycle old fabrics to make something new – like gift wrap!
In this workshop for children aged 12 - 17 years, the upcycling artist Jodie from a Fitting Connection will share ways to turn everyday items into stamps, and show how to use them to block print and create unique garments or personalised gift wrapping.
Materials are supplied, but participants are encouraged to bring along their own well-loved garments or pillowcases to resurrect them. Please note participants are welcome to come and go in the workshop time if they choose as some participants will spend more time printing or may wish to print more items than others.
