Join us for a Slogan Printing Workshop after a guided tour of Carried Away: Bags Unpacked, followed by light snacks and refreshments. You'll design, print and carry away your very own bespoke slogan on a sturdy canvas tote bag.
While you’re relaxing, there will be a short discussion on the history of slogans and personal statements in fashion and art. If you don’t already have a motto, maxim or message, this talk will inspire a statement or two.
Whether it’s rage or rhapsody, funny or frivolous, you will have the opportunity to make a unique, one-off stencil to make a bespoke slogan for a tote bag that's just for you - we provide all the things you'll need.
Get your ideas ready. The shorter the better. Your tote bag can speak for you. Is it a conversation starter or finisher? A serious statement or a silly joke; you decide.
Group bookings can be made but are subject to availability.
10 people group booking $800 - exclusive private workshop class with wine and food included.
Additional people $60 each (up to a limit of 20 people)
Light snacks and refreshments are included as part of this workshop event.
