is about designing your own fashion and fabric items:
Using different paints and tools to bring colour, pattern and/or images on T-shirts, shirts, shoes, caps and other clothes, or on cushions, napkins, tablecloths and other fabrics.
The pros of fabric painting
Fabric painting can be very satisfying and relaxing, it is a creative and productive activity.
The results of this activity are unique products, – fabrics and clothing items with individual designs. We can wear/use them ourselves or give them as very personal gifts to others.
And fabric painting is an easy-to-do activity. You don’t need any experience, or talent, or training, – everyone can start it and will over time develop different techniques and a personal style.
The cons of fabric painting
Many people don’t know much about fabric painting, and others have no idea how to get started.
And it is not easy to find the materials needed: the paints, brushes and other equipment. Searching craft shops and online shops takes time and each retailer offers only a limited range of products and brands.
And there is no central place where you can get information and learn about the different techniques and tools which can be used to create individual designs.
Also, – fabric painting can be a very lonely activity, – not everyone wants to enroll in classes or has friends around who share that passion.

where we can meet and get to know each other,
