Playful Prints

Saturday 15 July
10:30 – 11:00 | 11:15 – 11:45 | 12:00 – 12:30
The Studio

Explore hand-printing techniques with your child and give their old clothing a new lease of life!

Join Making for Change for a playful hand-printing workshop where children can nurture their creative skills and design vibrant patterns on old t-shirts. Using pre-cut blocks and textile inks, this workshop offers a fun opportunity to revive and personalise garments. Please bring a plain children’s t-shirt that is in need of a fresh look – if you don’t have one, there will be a limited selection of preloved garments available to use.

*Suitable for children aged 3-7 years
*All participants must be accompanied by an adult

The Studio will be jam packed with family-friendly activities so, whilst your little ones get creative, why not refresh their wardrobe and your own at the Clothes Swap Shop, hosted by Verte, or learn all about rental and check out the latest collections from or collective.
