Ideal for those who have previously done our UV screen-print induction. 

Beccy Williams (Oct 17th) Yes, this is me…I will be giving an insight into Free-Machine Embroidery techniques that can be used to ‘draw’ in stitch directly onto fabric or in conjunction with with dissolving fabric, a film which disappears in cold water leaving only the network of sticthes behind, allowing you to create beautiful lacey 3-D objects and jewellery.

(Brighton Rock Arts Group) will be paying us a visit to host a Gig Poster Masterclass , not only giving practical guidance on layout design and production of multiple-colour prints, but also providing industry tips on approaching bands for work and getting a foot-hold in the industry.
