Lino Printing – Revamp Your Wardrobe

Participants will be given the opportunity to up-cycle items from their wardrobe by printing new motifs and patterns. Participants are invited to bring in an old plain t-shirt or tote bag to the session, we will then be planning, carving and printing our own lino print designs onto our existing garments/accessories – giving them a new lease of life!

Age suitability: This workshop is for young adults and adults (18+).

Recommended items of clothing/textiles to bring:

– White or light coloured plain t-shirt, this can be long or short sleeve (this should be a considerably light colour so that we are able to see the inks we are printing with – avoid bringing in black t-shirts)

– Tote bag or any other plain canvas type bag (main thing is that it is a mostly natural fabric, doesn’t have any sheen etc so that printing inks can take to fabric) Any spare fabric you would like to practice on (e.g. old tea towels, remnant fabric etc).

*If you are struggling to find anything that relates to the above list – e.g. if you are struggling to find a plain t-shirt, you are welcome to bring something which already contains an existing motif/patterns that you don’t mind printing on top of. You could also bring any plain old tea towels you may have at home to jazz up or practice
printing with.
