We hope you have had a super sunny summer with plenty of relaxation.
Often its a good time for reflection about your interests and things you might want to spend more time on..which brings us to WORKSHOPS!
Leaf Lanterns - Printing leaf textures on fabric
Letterpress & Linocutting
Mog from eightfivepress has been running workshops in Letterpress and Linocutting, including some competitively priced 'one to ones'.
You can purchase a workshop voucher on our website and then arrange a time to suit you..So no more excuses! It also makes an original gift.
Here are some images from recent workshops to whet your creative appetite..

Letterpress Workshop - Gold letterpress ink printed on the Adana 8x5 printing press
New to MAKERS this autumn are leaf lanterns. This is a textile workshop primarily, printing with leaves and natural materials on fabric, then making a mini lantern for those autumnal evenings or late summer parties. All materials included. Saturday 1st October.
Lampshade Making Workshops
We still have a couple of places left (at time of press) on the next two lampshade making workshops. Wednesday 14th September and Saturday 17th September. Now is a good time to turn your attention to lighting and there's nothing nicer than the satisfaction of making it yourself! You get to make a 20, 25 or 30cm diameter shade from the fabric you bring ( so you can match it to your decor ). A lampshade is a great way to change your look and create a statement piece for a room.
We hope to see you at MAKERS workshops soon!
p.s. If workshops aren’t your thing then do remember MAKERS shop & gallery is full of wonderful hand made contemporary crafts.
