UpPrint Workshop for Lambeth Open: 1st & 2nd October

It is that time of year again, the beginning of October when we, and many other creative folk of Lambeth open their doors for the weekend and let any who are interested in to have a look round.

Last year we showcased Berit Greinke‘s wonderful Chrome(live) piece and did a bit of live repeat screen printing of the Foundling Museum’s 17th Century Florella pattern. This year, along with the stunning work of Artist Dawn Dupree on show in the Print, Press, Process exhibition, we thought we would do something a little different using some heat transfer techniques.

For the 1st and 2nd October weekend we will be holding drop-in workshops for anyone and everyone to upcycle for a fashion-forward Autumn. There will be knitwear, scarves and ties available for you to choose, provided by the lovely people at Traid. Using screen printing techniques and materials currently seen on the catwalks across the world you will get a taster of working in a professional textile print studio. With the assistance and guidance of our lovely print team who have created the samples for fashion designers such as Preen, Louise Gray, Topshop and Christopher Shannon you will have the opportunity to create something truly unique!

cost: All clothing items will cost a small amount, with all proceeds going back to Traid’s worthy causes.

time: 10am – 5.30pm, Saturday and Sunday

processes: screen printing, foiling, dye sublimation

We look forward to seeing you there!

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.
