Event description
Join illustrator and textile artist Lucy Ketchin for this action packed natural printing workshop especially for young people

About this event

Hapa-zome is the Japanese technique of natural dyeing fabric by smashing flowers and leaves into fabric and it is very fun to do!

You will get to pick from an array of foraged flowers and leaves and Lucy will guide you through everything you need to know to get creative and make patterns and prints onto fabric using your very own hammer!

In each workshop, there will also be the opportunity to contribute something to a zine that we will be making collectively throughout the project.

Booking is essential. Suitable for children aged 7-11.

This workshop is part of our new project 'Makers & Shakers' which is a series of exciting craft workshops and zine making project for young people in Leeds.

Designed to inspire and nurture the next generation of makers, artists and creative thinkers, we've put together an amazing line-up of workshops from guest artists including everything from weaving and printing to model making and craftivism. Throughout the workshops we will also be opening up discussions in topics such as wellbeing, culture, creativity and the environment and co-designing a riso printed craft zine with the young people which will be available to buy at the end of the project.

The project will close on 31st July with a zine launch event which parents and carers are welcome to attend. Free tickets are available to book now.

Supported with funding from Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council.
