Sun 22 May: Diesel School of Island Life - Customisation Class with Fred Butler & Katie Eary - hosted by i-D
On Thursday evening Katie Eary and I held our customisation class put on for the public to attend and hosted by i-D Magazine. The perfect number of punters turned up to get stuck in and have fun making something they could take away at the end of the night. Katie and I spent the afternoon prepping and conjuring up a demonstration piece as guidance for what skills we would be sharing (then awarded as a prize at the end). I bought some paper flowers from previous jobs as reference and guided my class step by step how to interpret the styles for their own Island theme headdress. Katie rigged up a row of heat presses and helped her group turn their jeans into shiny animal patterned artworks......... the whole thing was great success so I'm looking forward to seeing which festivals these bits and pieces turn up at.........
