Try out fashion skills with ST-ART
Think you might be the next Stella McCartney or Jasper Conran?
Then try out your skills at some of the workshops starting next week on Monday, August 8 and lasting a fortnight, at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber.
Thanks to the young people’s charity ST-ART this is the ideal opportunity to put your design and production skills to the test with a series of fashion workshops which will transport you back almost half-a-century to the Swinging 60s and the days of Flower Power.
Textile artist Wendy Chan will be leading a four day long workshop beginning on August 8. All four days must be attended to allow plenty of time for the design and making up of the outfit. Those taking part will have the chance to make shift dresses, mini-skirts and tops which were all much prized in the 1960s.
In additional two hour long workshops, creative fashionistas will also learn just what it was like in the 1960s and early 1970s by acquiring the skills to tie-dye shirts and skirts, screen print t-shirts and bags, make accompanying fashion accessories as well as the bright and bold jewellery of that period and Flower Power headbands and paper bead jewellery in a series of two hour long workshops.
And if that was not all, there will be the opportunity to show off each creation – with matching hair and make up courtesy of CV Day Spa – at a 60s Fashion Show which will be held at Ropery Hall on Friday, September 2.
