From the run of free workshops that Work It have been hosting down at Radio1 Hackney Academy, some winners have been chosen from the t-shirt strand. Artists from different disciplines have held classes on designing apparell artwork (Chrissie Abbott, Patternity, Rosy Nicholas, Nina Mandandhar, Poppy Chancellor) and nominated their favourites produced from the group. On Monday evening the results of the final winners judged by myself and Meryl Fernandes were announced and these will be reproduced and sold as the official merchandise at the festival. So when youre at the festivities this weekend, be sure to check out the t-shirt stand to see the results from local kids handi-work which you can purchase to celebrate Hackney's summer of success!
