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.
