This workshop is a chance to learn to screen print tote bags at the wonderful Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Design and print your own colourful tote bag inspired by Dippy the dinosaur or the museum’s collection of birds, nests and eggs!
In the workshop you will create a bold design or pattern inspired by
dinosaurs, Jurassic plants, birds or something of your choice. You will then use a scalpel to
hand cut stencils based on your design from either paper or thin
plastic. Using your stencils you will screen print your design onto tote
bags with a silk screen, squeegee and bright coloured fabric inks. All materials and equipment will be provided including two plain tote
bags each, plain fabric to test ideas on and bright coloured and
fluorescent water based fabric inks.
