Punkin' the Jubilee


For the next happening at The Stove we will be joining in with Dumfries’ Guid Nychburris on Saturday 16th June. Using DIY fashion and music by turning 100 High St into a 100 club with T-Shirt printing factory and music venue.
The populous of Dumfropolis will be invited to come in and pick from a set of one-off designs – print their own t-shirt, customise it and wear it to a gig in the square outside.
We are committed to the idea of this as something that is fast and dirty in the way it comes together and are looking for a team of anarchic-spirited folk, to be part of it in a number of ways:
1. Make a zeitgeist design to mark the Jubilee (the jubilee of whatever, is up to you)….what we are looking for are one colour designs that can be screen printed onto t-shirts/badges etc (see technical details below)
2. Come along to a free screenprinting workshop with DIY screen printing expert Geraldine Greene
3. Help out on 16th June at The Stove  Factory Shop– screenprinting, badgemaking, Polaroid making, or as a roadie
