This is one of the vintage armchairs that I scored off ebay for $20 and keep at our Capalaba studio. Why is it here you ask? I have yearned for the longest time to cover it in one of our lovely hand-printed fabrics and was hoping to learn upholstery at the Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show. Realistically, I probably won't have the time but you lucky visitors should take advantage of all the amazing opportunities to learn new skills such as crochet, knitting, beading and fabric dyeing to name a few.
Some workshops incur a small fee for materials but there are free demos on offer too. I will be conducting daily demonstrations on how to screen-print your own 2-colour designs on fabric for personalised projects. Simply turn at the Learning Centre at least 5 minutes prior to each session. The times are as follows:
Studio 1 -Wednesday 1.00pm
Studio 1 -Thursday 12.30pm
Studio 1 -Friday 12.30pm
Studio 1 -Saturday 2.30pm
Studio 1 -Sunday 12.00pm
And so that you can go home and get printing, we will have small screens and squeegies available for purchase at our stand 156. If you look closely at the photo you will notice some printed fish fabric in the background but that is a story for another day so stay tuned.
