The Brief


We want the design to have broad appeal from workshop users to local residents, here are the design angles to choose from:
  • a celebration of seven years of the workshop
  • an homage to your design heroes
  • the joy of making through a favoured tool or practice


You might choose to go abstract, create a slogan, be process led or highly detailed…. Submit your sketches to info@blackhorseworkshop with the subject title ‘T-shirt Design’

We can’t wait to see your ideas! 🤸‍♂️
