- DURATION 60 mins
Join Amy, pick up your recycled, found and textured materials and we’ll create something unexpected! This is an experimental workshop where we try things out just to see what will happen! No experience necessary – please join in for the joy of trying a new technique, which you can then continue to explore after the workshop.
During this session we will direct print together using found materials. In advance, please collect textured materials, such as embossed wallpapers, hessian, bubble wrap, paper lace etc. Flatter objects might print better, but I encourage you to test things out by selecting a variety of textures/ sizes and objects.
We will paint and print these, creating our own experimental piece, considering colour, placement, and pattern when printing. During the workshop we can share what we are creating and discuss what works well and what doesn’t, learning from each other.
Put on your old clothes/ apron/ gloves, find a clean surface to work on, or place newspaper on a surface to protect it.

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
Printing with Textures has supplementary learning materials provided by the event host. Once you book an event, you will get access to these resources.
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
