As promised I have a really special State of Design giveaway for one lucky Design Files reader! The lovely people at Melbourne’s much-loved screenprinting company Spacecraft are running a brilliant hands-on workshop this Saturday July 17th, and here you can win yourself a place (valued at $300!).

This is a really rare opportunity for one lucky print / textile enthusiasts to work alongside Stewart Russell and the very inspiring Spacecraft team in their North Melbourne studio. The session will be used to transform abandoned garments and furniture, using different printing techniques and the Spacecraft library of prints to create a collection of modern heirlooms.

The session is open to only 10 people, and everyone will go home with a unique printed garment / object they have played a part in transforming!

This workshop coincides with Spacecraft’s State of Design exhibition, The Aesthetics of Saving (part 2). Part one of the workshop was held in Osaka, Japan last year.

*Thanks for all your entries guys! Please note a winner has now been randomly selected and notified by email – the winner was Tess McCabe (comment number 2!)*
