The Dirty Workshops

 Had a fantastic week last week at the Dirty Denim exhibition opening & workshops.  Here are some snaps from the workshop days - check out this full table of sewing dirty denim girls!
It was a joy to share my love of English Paper Piercing and even more exciting to witness other hand sewers enjoy the patchwork technique too.  Verity is explaining screen printing processes here.
And here distressing the denim using bleach (although far from environmentally sustainable!)

This family making team brought along there own jeans to make two denim bags and create a skirt from the waist band!
Below are some finished works
