On the weekend of the 1st and 2nd October, we held a very special drop in workshop for the Lambeth Open. Based around freelance tutor Dawn Dupree’s exhibition and recent release of a book on heat press techniques, we decided it should centre around the wonderful world of foiling.
Foiling is a great way to upcycle, especially knitwear that may be showing its age, with bobbles, moth holes or a few inoffensive stains. With that in mind, we partnered up with the lovely people at Traid to provide garments at a low cost for people to recreate into something fashionable, wearable and very shiny!
Over the two days we saw some incredible results from participants from the ages of 4 years all the way up, good enough for fashion shows around the world, but especially to keep you cozy through the winter months.
Thank you everyone who came down to see the exhibition, view the space and take part in the workshop, we all had a lot of fun. Also a big thank you to Traid, and to all the organisers of the brilliant Lambeth Open.
If you are interested in learning to foil print, and the wealth of other processes possible through heat press techniques, we offer a 2 day course taught by Dawn Dupree. You can find out more in our ‘Training and Courses’ page.
