A set of two workshops that combine printing on fabric and discovering how to add stitches to the prints. The first evening workshop will be spent exploring different methods of printing on to fabric with paints and creating a set of print blocks for you to keep. A variety of techniques will be taught including printing from found items, creating and using the print blocks, using different types of paint, creating resists and more. The second evening workshop will focus on using your printed fabrics to create textile art or a more functional item. You will learn a range of stitches and manipulation techniques to help you achieve your chosen outcome. Stitches can be done using hand or machine embroidery; if you would like to use machine embroidery, please bring your machine, bobbins and embroidery foot. All materials are included, but please feel free to bring along any found items you would like to print from and a basic sewing kit if you have one. The first workshop will involve creative messiness and so you may prefer to wear old clothes and bring an apron. Refreshments are provided.
