Sublimation Workshop

The workshop in full swing


Last weekend saw Northcity4 full to the brim with students. It was very exciting to be running our first workshop in the new designated school area. The workshop was on Sublimation Printing on Metal and Plastic taught by Anna Davern (me).

It was a full house with 10 students working at our brand new benches (built by the ubiquitous Robbie Rowlands). Everyone commented on how beautiful and new they were and how it wasn’t going to be long before they will wear the marks of many makers.

Producing images in photoshop

Everyone had lots of fun, including the tutor (me) and her assistants (Caz and Romani) while learning a new technique which can be reproduced at home! We even had delicious home-baked chocolate chip biscuits made by Ali Limb!

The weather was beautiful and we opened up the front roller door at lunchtime

At the end of the two days everyone was totally stuffed but we’d all made some new friends, some new pieces of jewellery to wear and had plenty of material to make more at home.

And we’re running the whole thing again this weekend! It’s getting full but we might be able to squeeze 1 or 2 more in if you get in quick!
