stART. Young people chose shirts from a pile of jumble and screen printed them. We had a lot of fun and a great way to give new life to an old shirt!

Ah devore - the process of burning away certain fibres in order to reveal the fabric below, creating subtle and beautiful effects.
This is a very exciting workshop where you will make a scarf by screen printing onto velvet with devore paste, then dye it using both procion and acid dyes. Take note though that materials will be quite expensive for this workshop but you will learn lots of skills in a single session and with christmas coming up it would make a very special handmade present for someone.
At Cottenham Village College CVC Workshops on 19 Nov 2011 from 10am - 4pm - Cost £30 + materials. Contact CVC and ask for a full pamphlet with more details.
I was really impressed with the standard of work! Well done to all who took part - young people, teachers- the wonderful Mrs Chapman and TA's Isleham school
