During October 2018, we ran a programme of events For Design Manchester Festival.
We launched our programming with a free Studio Party.
PRINT. MAKE. DANCE. [RE]PEAT was a relaxed affair, intended to introduce our work and the artists, whilst allowing people the chance to express themselves via printing. There was music, making & dancing.
Our activities were inspired by the Patrick Thomas’ Protest Stencil Toolkit around the theme of DISRUPT!
The book contains 46 die-cut stencils, and a bespoke typeface, combining slogans and powerful visual messages. We reinterpreted the toolkit into elements for the workshops we ran.
[[RE]]STITCH PRINT & FORM
Participants screen printed different components and constructed tote bags using a sewing machine.They went away with a completed bag featuring a bespoke printed surface pattern design.
[[RE]]STITCH OVER & UNDER
Using laser cut components and threads in a selection of vibrant colours and styles, participants learnt embroidery construction and connecting techniques to create wearable art jewellery.
