Event description

Description

“Loving them. Repair, ReStyle, ReInvent” series in fashion.

This time enjoy the space, colours and vibe at 513 Paint Shop in PMQ.
Get hands-on painting on fabric.

Join this session and customise a tote or cloth bag, or step forward and explore if any of your garments could look better with some changes made with paint. In that case we will help you visualize the potential result and get it done.

Add a design or pattern on a plain garment; cover some stains or designs you are not crazy about, or simply change the colours of a print you want to keep..., there are infinite possibilities.

Get in touch and we'll explore ideas beforehand, or just come and have a look to see how it is, what colours you like for that potential garment to be transformed, take easy the creative process and start thinking until you feel it's the time ;)

The paint... non-toxic and suitable for many surfaces including textiles. Better gentle wash always to help it last longer.
