The Apocalypse Hits … Birmingham

Step forward in time to the world after the apocalypse – learn to dye fabric with plants and rust, harness the power of the sun to make stunning images on fabric and paper and create  props and models using rusting, weathering and painting techniques. It may be end-times, but it’s not the end of the world for your wardrobe … on display will be a range of corsets, dresses, jackets and more using a range of techniques – from day-wear to wedding and costume plus for the first time, ICHF Events bring Rusty the IA van and Tesso the award-winning motorbike to the show! The Inventors Asylum team will be running a cyanotype Make & Take, a papercutting workshop in the Creative Den and a talk on embracing your inner Wabi Sabi in the lecture theatre.
