Join us for a 3-day workshop for Young Designers, the sessions will be jam-packed and full of exciting and experiential processes and techniques. Participants will take inspiration from the current exhibition The Fabric of Democracy and create a body of work that could be used for your portfolios, sketchbook work and independent projects.
Over the three days, you will explore experimental drawing techniques, collage, screen printing with paper stencils and exposed screens, repeat patterns, fashion illustration, designing on mini mannequins, stitch, sketchbook work and designing mood boards for your portfolios. You will also have a private tour of the exhibition and a garment-handling session delivered by the museum team. You are welcome to focus on a personal project and develop this for your portfolios or use the existing content designed especially for the workshop.
This course is open to 12-18 year olds who are curious about design, who are willing to take risks and who have a specialist interest in fashion and mixed media textiles. This workshop would also be useful for students who are thinking to apply for further studies and need to improve their creative skills.
