This April at Makerversity we are proud to be hosting the book launch of the extremely exciting “Print, Make, Wear”.
Print, Make, Wear is the most recent book from Makerveristy members Melanie Bowles and The Peoples Print. The book truly makes waves in the textile industry by inspiring and bringing traditional handcrafts – such as patchwork and embroidery – to life utilising computer software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
Inside Melanie’s book you will find 14 easy to follow projects that take you through the process to creating your own digital textile designs. The 14 projects included are Paintbrush Floral, Post Modern Play, Easy Boy Check, Vintage Floral, Hackney Lights, Bargello Dress, Dahlia Skirt, Clara’s Patchwork Shibori, Colour Me In, Monotone Man, Stitched by Jane, Made In Brixton, and Modern Folk.
Print, Make, Wear is especially exciting as now more than ever high street bureaus are accepting your digital files and printing on a the fabric of your very own choice! How cool is that?
