Seaside Sisters at Craft Central

May 2, 2010 at 6:01 pm Leave a comment

Seaside Sisters will be taking over Craft Central’s window with a ‘Souvenir Shop’ style display of their goodies from 3rd – 8th May. It’ll be visible 24 hours a day from St Johns Square, Clerkenwell.

On Saturday 8th May they are running two workshops to share some of their crafty secrets. Throughout the day you can learn how to make beautiful prints and create fancy bunting decorations, play the tombola, tuck into tea, cakes and sandwiches, and try your luck on the crafty hoopla. Drop in to the Craft Central foyer where they’ll be showing off more of their wares in a display of portholes, and you can buy favourites like their lovely seaside purses, souvenir tea towel bags and bunting flags.

Print Gocco Workshop, 10am – 1pm

In the morning workshop, Xtina Lamb shows how to get the most out of a Print Gocco, the cult Japanese printing machine much loved by designer makers and artists. Topics include: creating artwork, DIY registration techniques, screen printing on cloth, troubleshooting, and creating larger prints with a standard sized machine. A range of Print Gocco machines will be demonstrated, example artwork will be on show and you can make your own prints using the techniques shown. This workshop is great for those who have a Print Gocco machine already, or those who are curious about whether to get one. It’s an easy process but there are lots of ways to experiment and push this lovely little gadget beyond the simple prints it was designed for. Bring along your own artwork, draw it on the day, or use the images provided in the workshop. All materials are included in the £20 workshop fee, including screens, bulbs, cloth, paper, cards and inks.

Bunting Making Workshop, 2 – 5pm

In the afternoon bunting making workshop you can raid the Seaside Sisters’ stash of gingham, vintage fabrics, buttons and haberdashery galore to make your very own bunting flags. Spell your name, make a slogan or just create and decorate! £5 buys you a bunting making starter kit and additional flags are 50p each. All materials are included and the Seaside Sisters will be on hand to teach fancy embroidery stitches and provide demos of bunting making magic.
