Last weekend London Printworks trasformed into a nomadic vintage print workshop, with a transportable Heat Press to provide the lovely people at Vintage Festival 2011 some fun, colour, fabric and print within the Art School section.
Over the three days people came to visit us in the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, just above the hopping Torch Club and created some of the most wonderful vintage inspired headscarves, neckachiefs, tights and handkerchiefs. Using a variety of collage, painting and illustrations provided by Sophie Herxheimer and Laura Knight, vintage clad visitors ranging from four years old to sixty-odd years had a chance to print with Printworks.
It was great to meet such a range of people, including the talented staff at all the other brilliant workshops and the Hemingways.
We experienced such a great response to the workshop, even from WGSN fashion trend company who were so impressed with the tights a 12 year old girl created, they guaranteed they would appear on their subscription website!
We hoped everyone enjoyed the wonderful festival, we sure did!
If you would like to know more about our training and course programmes, and maybe even more about heat press courses (the one in our workshop is eight times bigger!) then please do get in touch.
