Feeling creative but don't know how best to get those juices flowing? Head down to Boxpark this month and you'll be sure to find a workshop that's right for you!
GET RICH OR TIE-DYEING WITH LIZZIE KING
Tuesday 3rd March
7 - 9pm
Join Lizzie King at Boxpark on the first Tuesday of each month for ‘Get Rich or Tie-Dyeing’ - a tie dye masterclass where you will learn a range of tie-dye techniques including folding, pleating, dipping, crumpling & sealing to transform old clothes that have seen better days.
You can create anything from a trippy t-shirt, pillow case, baby-gro or jumper (white and 100% cotton work best) and turn something washed out into a psychedelic wonder.
All dyeing materials will be provided, as well as the option to purchase a plain white t-shirt to dye. There will be gloves to protect your hands but make sure you don’t wear your Sunday best as accidents can happen.
Tickets are £12 with limited space available and available from Billetto
2 - 10 Bethnal Green Road
WITH THE PRIVATE PRESS
Wednesday 4th March
6 - 8.30pm
Join The Private Press at Boxpark for an evening of screen printing. This is an informal workshop where you will be encouraged and helped to create your very own screen print using the screens and ink provided.
You can try your hand at screen printing a 2 or 3 colour A4 print, and experiment with layering colours - we’ll have pre-exposed screens so you can focus on composition and pulling a print.
All materials will be provided, you don’t need to bring anything with you. Drop in at any time between 6 - 8.30pm, whenever is convenient for you (allow around half an hour to create your print). You will also have the opportunity to learn about screen printing process and find out more about The Private Press.
This workshop would best suit those who are new to the screen printing or those who are keen to have a go and take home their own print!
Tickets cost £10 you can get them from Billetto
