Screenprint Textiles with Food Waste & Plants

Did you know that your leftovers could become pigments for textiles?

Join us for a sustainable workshop on how to transform food waste and plants into sustainable screen-printing inks. Use these pigments to personalise a t-shirt with a printed design. Materials are provided however if you have a t-shirt you want to upcycle, bring it along! During this workshop you will:

  • Learn how to create pigments from a range of food and plant sources
  • Create stencil designs
  • Print your unique design onto a cotton t-shirt

This workshop is part of the ‘What’s in My Home?’ programme running at The Lab E20 in East Village. All abilities and ages are welcome. Young children must be accompanied by an adult.

Book your place on the eco screen-printing workshop below for £10 per person.
