Design Intensive Workshop at the Rare Trades Centre

Access info

Immerse yourself in design development, screen printing and bag-making with Nicola Cerini. 

Over a period of two days, you’ll create your own screen printed fabric and combine it with leather components to make a beatiful and functional crossbody bag.

On day one, you’ll learn to screen print. You’ll play with a simple and effective Screen-Printing technique using cut-paper stencils to create beautiful prints ready to turn into a bag. You’ll print fabric for your bag, along with a linen tea towel and denim apron with the designs you’ve created in the workshop.

On day two, we’ll make a crossbody bag by assembling the printed fabric you created and leather components into a functional and stylish accessory.

Held at Ballarat’s Australian Centre for Rare Arts and Forgotten Trades, a world-class facility dedicated to learning and preserving Australia’s rare arts and trades through a series of workshops, masterclasses, events, and residencies.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
