Screenprinted Garments Inspired by the Seaside

with Alex Adams 

Tue 8 August 2023
11:00 am
- 3:00 pm

The Workshop

Children aged 9 – 14 can have a go at screenprinting their own tote bag or t-shirt in this exciting printmaking workshop led by Alex Adams!

Inspired by the bold type designs in Signs of the Seaside, the participants will explore seaside lettering, typography and graphics, before having a go at creating a design themselves.

With Alex’s support, they will design their own stencils and have a go at screenprinting their own unique creations onto their desired garment. Once completed, participants can take their work home with them to enjoy!

Materials and entry to the exhibition, Signs of the Seaside included. Please bring a packed lunch.
