The aim of the workshops is to introduce play and hand sewing and print making skills to bring new life to reclaimed denim. I sewed up some denim bags as to make the play create functional items.
Amy Karol. - Just wait until you see the fantastic bags Verity has in the Dirty Denim exhibition - they are gorgeous!
Last week Verity did some screen printing with the workshop women & also bleach dying - that took me back to year 8 as I spent hours bleaching my cut off jean's in Mum's laundry sink.
Looking forward to the workshop today - embellishing the denim.
Dirty Denim opens today at 6pm at La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre - Verity and I are hosting another workshop this Sunday, which unfortunately is booked out! However we are hosting a talk in Sustainable Textiles at 2pm on Sunday which you are welcome to come along and join in.
