In the three hour workshop you’ll also learn how to create textures and patterned surface prints, there will be light refreshments provided as you learn to print in a laid-back environment.

The workshop is led by Sally Gilford, a printed textile specialist whose studio is part of the Salford Makers space in Islington Mill. As a Salford Maker founder, Sally is part of >thread{}, a collaboration which uses data processing and human biodata to create patterned imagery. As a creative practitioner, Gilford encourages self-expression and creative experimentation, the artist has been leading workshops for 10 years and the experience helps really brings out your best.
