Synthetic dyes for image transfer onto fabrics with Harriet Hughes

A free workshop experimenting with sublimation print and dysperse dye transfer onto fabric as part of the Great Train Tapestry Project.

Sunday, 26th November : 13:00 – 15:00

Eastgate Centre, Gloucester, GL1 1AG (11 Bell Walk & the Hundred Heroines Museum on the first floor)

Following our series of exploratory workshops led by international artist Lisl Ponger, we are now at the making stage of the Great Train Tapestry – a large, contemporary textile artwork, to be exhibited in 2024, that explores the history and stories of GWR, its relationship to Gloucester, women, borders, labour, the textile industry …

We’re running a series of workshops exploring and experimenting with different techniques. Why not come along, be creative and add your contribution to this unique story.

In this free workshop led by artist Harriet Hughes, we will learn different methods of printing photographs onto fabric.

Ever wanted to know how photocopies, mark making and collage can be used with synthetic dyes? Or how photographs can be printed using sublimation? Come and find out – it will all be covered during this casual two-hour workshop at the Hundred Heroines Museum.

Free entry – all welcome.
