Cath Kidston on Acid / Jermyn

For Christmas I was wondering what would be the best thing to make.  The women of my family always talk about getting something new from Kath Kidston so I set myself the brief to create a pattern and make as many different products from that as I could.  Printing the pattern on to fabric, paper and laser MDF I ended up with curtains, pillows, clothing, christmas decorations, puzzles clocks, keyrings, bags and many other items.

We also managed to get a photo shoot with Little Dragon too.

IGNITE / All Saints Infants & Junior School

I spent a week with All Saints Junior and Infants School making work which could be sold for the schools enterprise week.

We screen printed positive affirmations onto tea towels and posters and season inspired screen prints onto tote bags. We also screen printed Hundertwasser inspired tshirts and poly printed pin wheel trees.

IGNITE / Crofton Infants

During the 2 days I spent at Crofton Infants, we made screen printed tote bags as part of the school’s enterprise project and we will also made screen prints onto fabric.

We printed symbols and silhouettes associated with African culture and use bright colours found in African textiles.

IGNITE / West Bretton Primary School

The workshops at West Bretton Primary School focused on their expedition to Lesotho in 2015.  We made prints inspired by african textiles onto tote bags and tea towels that will be sold to raise funds for the trip.  Copies of each printed item were also made so they can also be exhibited in school.

In addition to this, we made prints onto fabric that focused on the contrasting landscape between Wakefield and Lesotho, particularly focusing on trees as this directly relates to the issue of permaculture in Lesotho and the importance of planting trees (the school will be planting trees during their trip).

These fabric prints will be made into two murals, one of which will stay at school and the other will be given as a gift to the exchange school in Lesotho.

Brilliant work!
