Make. Stitch. Play.
On the theme of ‘Feel Good’, join ReMode and fashion activist Niki Taylor for a weekend of creativity; creating bold and colourful prints inspired by nature; mindfully slowing down with some restorative drawing and stitching, ending Sunday session with a fun ‘disco make’ – an opportunity for self expression through making a zero-waste garment ready for dressing up!
Day 1 – Saturday 9th September 10.30-4.30pm – Lochwinnoch Park, Lochlip Road, PA12 4AF as part of the Lochwinnoch Feel Good Family Fun Day
We will start by exploring nature and our locality within Lochwinnoch. Designers and artists find inspiration in many unexpected places, we will explore, draw and collage ideas to create your own printed patterns. Using block printing and screens we will upcycle fabrics to create bold, expressive, clashing colourful prints to make us feel brighter!
Day 2 – Sunday 10th September 10.30-4.30pm – The Work Place, 39 High Street, Lochwinnoch, PA12 4AB
There is an option to print fabric lengths or start to make your own zero-waste garment creations. Our Sunday Revolutionary ‘Disco-Make’ session will provide a fun day of making; sewing and expressing, creating joy filled garments. Through a combination of machine and hand stitching techniques you will experiment, make and play with shape, colour and silhouettes ending a fun photoshoot to share the love of clothes and dressing up.
Please feel free to join us for the full weekend of ‘Make. Stitch. Play’ or either the Saturday or Sunday. No experience of drawing, printing or sewing is required and all beginners and those curious to learn more and have fun through creative practice are welcome!
