About this workshop
Immerse yourself in design development, screen printing and bag-making with Nicola Cerini.
Over a period of three days, we'll delve into design heaven, screen print up a storm and make a beautiful crossbody bag using your very own designs created from scratch!
On day 1, we’ll explore some fun design development techniques using a variety of techniques including drawing, mono printing, collage, and cut paper. This is an experimental day where happy accidents and magic can happen!
On day 2, we'll learn to screen print! We’ll play with a simple and effective Screen-Printing technique using cut-paper stencils to create beautiful prints ready to turn into a bag. You’ll print fabric for your bag, along with a linen tea towel and denim apron with the designs you’ve created in the workshop.
On day 3, we'll make a crossbody bag by assembling the printed fabric you created and leather components into a functional and stylish accessory.
