Make and design your own commercially printed tea towel and tote

To celebrate the opening of Queensland to a Twe are giving you the chance to create your very own tea towel - an often overlooked, but ever-present kitchen accessory. No, we're not going to ask you to dry up...

This is a two part workshop. In week one, soak up all the things that made tea towels popular souvenirs on a curator's tour of the exhibition. We'll then teach you the design skills using industry standard software to create your own design and have the fabric commercially printed.

For week two, your newly design printed fabric will be ready for fabricating with our sewing machines, turning your printed fabric design into two tea towels and one tote bag! You'll get to take home one of your own tea towels but the extra special thing is, one of your tea towel designs will be added to the State Library's collection.  

No inductions are necessary for this workshop.
