Immerse Yourself In Design, Screen Printing, and Bag-Making

Access info

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

Over a period of three days, you’ll delve into design heaven, screen print up a storm and make a beautiful crossbody bag using your very own designs created from scratch! 

On day one, you’ll explore some fun design development techniques using a variety of techniques including drawing, mono printing, collage, and cut paper. This is an experimental day where happy accidents and magic can happen!

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

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.
