Reuse/reinvent Textile Workshop @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

Join textile artist Jane McKeating to re-purpose and enhance vintage textile items to give them a new lease of life. In this workshop you will choose from a selection of vintage textile items and spend time reinventing its look using screen print and simple stitch.

The items will include aprons, handkerchiefs, tray cloths and pillow slips. Or feel free to bring your own item to transform.

You can respond to marks which might already be in the cloth, or work on a blank surface if preferred.

You will finish with a new item that might be for decoration or use.
