one69A and RAG are collaborating to give you the opportunity to design, print and create your own tshirt.
Using appliqué paper and various types of fabric, participants will have the opportunity to create shapes from drawings/images that can be ironed and then stitched to t-shirts, this can be incorporated with screen printing either over the design or onto the fabric before applying. Using silk screens and hand cut stencils you can draw and print your own designs and combine this with the simple appliqué technique to create your very own bespoke tshirt.
These workshops will be held in the newly refurbished club and gallery space at Islington Mill.
One69a design, make and print a variety of products at their studio in Islington Mill, Salford. All of our products are printed by hand using silk screens. We also facilitate a range of creative projects and workshops in Manchester and beyond.
