Young fashion designers in the Making (Rooms!)
35 12-14 year-olds from Playscheme had a wild time designing and screen printing their own t-shirts at The Making Rooms recently.
Lots of fun has been had in The Making Rooms over the last 2 weeks with 3 groups of young people from Leyland Playscheme designing and screen printing their own t-shirts.
The girls and boy created their unique designs using Inkscape 2D design software then used The Making Rooms’ laser cutter to cut paper stencils. The paper stencils were taped onto silk screen frames and then the young people let loose with the printing inks to create some wonderfully exotic multi-colour designs.
I think we set a new record on one day, designing and printing 23 individual t-shirts in a little over 4 hours!!
It’s really easy to do so if you want your own personally designed t-shirt then bring a blank t-shirt along to one of our open access days and create your masterpiece.
