Northam Yorgas Hand Printed Textiles

Monday 28th Nov, 2016

Across October and November 2016, CAN ran a series of creative workshops with the Northam Yorgas group.

Supported by Avivo in Northam, the group meets weekly to craft, chat and have some lunch.

During the workshops, participants created their own designs for lino prints. The original designs included flora and fauna and tell of WA nature, family and local culture. The printed fabrics have been sewn into cushion covers, brooches and bags to sell at the local Northam Christmas market, taking place on Saturday December 3 from 3pm to 9pm in Fitzgerald Street. All funds raised will go towards the 2017 activities.
