Florence Spurling Tubular Knit Workshop​


Date: 1 July 2022

Time: 4 - 7 pm

Florence Spurling is a textile designer, specialising in knitting, crochet, and embellishment.

She is passionate about creating detailed fabrications that celebrate traditional techniques and contemporary craftsmanship.

In this workshop, Florence will share a unique method of creating a tubular structure using a crochet hook, yarn and beads. You will learn a simple crochet stitch and then work on a 4-colour beaded design. The beaded tube can be joined in different ways and depending on the scale and materials used, can be used for jewellery or other product ideas. As well as discovering a new skill, you are encouraged to embrace the meditative process. All materials will be provided and no experience with crochet or beading is needed.

42 Gorst Studios Heatpress Workshop!

At 42 Gorst Studios we believe it is not only our duty to provide our lovely creatives a space where they can express & explore their creative passions, but to also nourish their creative knowledge. At our heat-press workshop we taught our guests different approaches and techniques when using a heat-press. From Sublimation designs, to painting with heat transfer inks we hope to encourage our creative community to explore different avenues! Here are some snap shots of what we got up to. Enjoy!
