Lambeth Country Show 2010

A young designer with stencilled bag and the LPT stand

On Sunday the 18th July 2010 all the LPT staff made their way down to set up a stand at the 35th Lambeth Country Show.

It was a buzzing atmosphere and many kids came over to stencil bags, try their hand at lucky dip with prizes including Zakee Shariff enamel pins and Martin Vowles t-shirts.

LPT showed excerpts from the Engagement Programmes catwalk show at Alternative Fashion Week 2010 and garments from the 15 year old pupil’s collections.

A local resident succesfully guessed the length of printed ribbon in the jar (30.53 metres long!) and will be joinging us for a free 5 Day Introduction to Printed Textiles course very soon.

Staff highlights included the Owl displays and the array of vegetable animals! A very enjoyable sunny Sunday.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
