print-make-wear Melanie Bowles

We are thrilled to share that Melanie Bowles & The People’s Print will be launching their recently completed book Print Make Wear – Creative Projects for Digital Textile Design with Laurence King at Makerversity, New Wing, Somerset House, Lancaster Place, London. The new publication will be available online and in the shops at the end of March.

Print, Make, Wear by Melanie Bowles and The People’s Print and published by Laurence King in March 2015 features 14 original projects that will inspire you to create your own digitally printed textile designs.

Digital print techniques are inspired by traditional handcrafts such as patchwork and embroidery and can now be brought to life by utilising computer software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Print, Make, Wear offers 14 easy-to-follow projects that will see you making your own printed textiles in no time. Previously the preserve of professional designers or fashion and textile colleges, digital printing is now available in high-street bureaus, where anyone can send a file to be printed on the material of their choice, ready to make and wear. Truly individual style has never been so easy!

The 14 projects are:

  • Paintbrush Floral
  • Post Modern Play
  • Easy Boy Check
  • Vintage Floral
  • Hackney Lights
  • Bargello
  • Dress
  • Dahlia Skirt,
  • Clara’s Patchwork
