Fabric Customisation with Matty Bovan
June 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
One event on June 12, 2021 at 2:00 pm
Participants (14-18 year olds) will use a variety of materials to customise a base fabric by adding colour and texture, showcasing how easy it is to customise and apply a DIY hands-on approach to textiles.
The resulting customised fabrics will then be used by Matty Bovan Studio to create garments and sets for the Matty Bovan installation at YSP in October 2021. This is a unique opportunity for participants to see their creations used as part of the wider exhibition at YSP and will also inspire people to customise their own clothes and create their own textiles.
Matty Bovan is a bespoke fashion label based in York, with a strong focus on knitted textiles, natural yarns, hand-dying, screen-printing, and English identity. The studio is dedicated to a sustainable ethos, employing a tight network of local British manufacturers, and local artisans.
Tickets cost £3 and pre-booking for the workshops is essential.
