A series of workshops over three days, this is a chance to try out lots of different textile and craft projects. We’ll be making felted flowers and beads using natural wool, having a go at tie dye, block printing, and bleach designing with stencils, and there is also the opportunity to sew your own customisable drawstring! Also an amazing opportunity to have a go at making glass beads at the flame with Rebecca Weddell in her studio (age 12+ only for the beads, I’m afraid).
Students need to bring a packed lunch each day and are advised to bring a set of old clothes to wear while dyeing/bleaching – (every care will be taken to avoid getting messy, but some people are just the messy sort!)
By the end of the workshop you will have your own uniquely designed denim duffle bag, a selection of tie-dyed and block printed bandana scarves and T-shirt, a bleach stencilled T-shirt, felted wool flowers, and a set of beads made into a necklace or keyring.
Dates: 3-day Workshop – Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th August 2019
Cost: This course is £200 for all three days (with an additional £40 if you opt to do the glass bead making) or, if your child only wants to attend one or two days the cost is £70 per day, and includes all materials. Suitable for ages 10+, boys and girls are welcome at all of our workshops. *Please note – you will not be able to do all of the activities above unless you pick all three days.
