Ever wondered what's involved in designing your own fabric? We're bringing together a number of great speakers to tell you all about it, at an event in Osborne Park , Western Australia
Speakers at the event include:
- Daniela Casadio is an architect who loves to draw with both real and digital pencils. She uses these same pencils to design fabrics which are available for purchase through digital fabric printing services Spoonflower (booboo_collective) and Australian-based Next State. Daniela will talk you through her mostly-digital design process, and her experiences with digital fabric printing.
- Liz Dawes is the owner of online and retail fabric store Woven Stories Texiles. Liz has a deep knowledge of screen and block printing, her love of which regularly take her to India, where she sources most of the fabrics for her store direct from fabric printing artisans and their co-ops. Back here in Perth, Liz also leads workshops in block printing techniques from her retail store in Myaree. FYI - - Liz will also have some of her fabric (pre-cuts and remnants) available for purchase on the day!
- Jess Lisle is a watercolour and textile artist who also makes her designs available to purchase via Spoonflower (hollydickson), and sells products she sews out of her fabric design on Etsy. Jess is also a member of the Maylands Sewcial Club! Jess will lead you through a tutorial on creating repeating patterns - an important consideration when designing your own fabric!
