We did the taster workshop ‘Get into product design’ with young people from The Prince’s Trust at Makerversity Each participant created their own print identity with our pix and mix pattern system ready to digital print onto stunning aprons printed and generously provided by Bags of Love!

Read the film and story on the Makerversity blog.

Pick and Mix Pattern Play

We were asked by Makerversity to run a digital learning workshop with The Prince’s Trust teaching young people how to create patterns for digital textile print. We used the Smogasbord pattern system design by Melanie Bowles and Kathryn Round originally for the Textile Toolbox exhibition. The Pick and Mix Textile Toolbox are box of colourful geometric shapes which can be configurated into different patterns, photographed and put into repeat units ready to upload and digitally print. Generously sponsored by Bags of Love who printed 14 aprons, we can’t wait to see them next week!
